Abstract
Baclofen is a derivative of %u03B3-aminobutyric acid (GABA), is used in the treatment of spasticity. Baclofen toxicity can cause muscle flaccidity, severe respiratory depression, seizure, coma, bradycardia/tachcardia, or hypotension/hypertension. We report on a 60-year-old female patient with chronic renal failure who presented with stupor due to baclofen intoxication in spite of low dosage.
