Myospa

Description

Myospa is a muscle relaxant and antispastic. Baclofen inhibits both monosynaptic and polysynaptic reflexes at the spinal level by stimulating the GABAB-receptors, which inhibits the release of glutamate and aspartate. It may also act at intraspinal sites producing CNS depression. Baclofen also exerts an antinoceptive effect.
