Brief Answer: My reply is below. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for posting your query. I have noted your symptoms. Gabapentin or pregabalin capsules are preferred to relieve the sciatic pain. So, you can start one of them. Baclofen is mainly used to relieve spasticity (increased tone of muscles) and spasms. If needed, you can take both baclofen and gabapentin together. I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
