Lioresal is a muscle relaxand as well as an antispastic agent. It is a good remedy for severe muscle spasms that occur as a result of various causes, including but not limited to brain or spinal cord injuries or multiple sclerosis. Lioresal easily reduces their severity and frequency.
Usually Lioresal is administered into the spinal can with the help of an injection through an implantable infusion pump. The pump is implanted at a hospital, and the injections are also administered by the doctor in clinical conditions. Your doctor will shedule appointments according to an individual plan, and you must come to their office regularly bringing Lioresal with you. If you prefer to undergo this procedure at home, you can arrange visits from a nurse working at your local hospital. Do not use Lioresal if you see that the liquid is cloudy, discolored, or contains separate particles. Also, discard cracked or otherwise damaged vials at once. If you miss a dose of Lioresal, contact your healthcare provider immediately so as to adjust your injection shedule.
Remember that Lioresal and the materials needed for its administration (syringes, needles and such) need to be kept away from children and pets. Syringes and needles must never be reused. You can receive the information on their correct disposal at your physician's office.
