Lioresal Intrathecal Drug Description
LIORESAL® INTRATHECAL
(baclofen) Injection

Abrupt discontinuation of intrathecal baclofen, regardless of the cause, has
resulted in sequelae that include high fever, altered mental status, exaggerated
rebound spasticity, and muscle rigidity, that in rare cases has advanced to
rhabdomyolysis, multiple organ-system failure and death.
Prevention of abrupt discontinuation of intrathecal baclofen requires careful
attention to programming and monitoring of the infusion system, refill scheduling
and procedures, and pump alarms. Patients and caregivers should be advised
of the importance of keeping scheduled refill visits and should be educated
on the early symptoms of baclofen withdrawal. Special attention should be
given to patients at apparent risk (e.g. spinal cord injuries at T-6 or above,
communication difficulties, history of withdrawal symptoms from oral or intrathecal
baclofen). Consult the technical manual of the implantable infusion system
for additional postimplant clinician and patient information (see WARNINGS).
