How can pain in the neck be treated?

My doctor prescribed Baclofen 10mg as needed for muscle spasms. My complaint is pain in my neck which is from arthritis. From reading about Baclofen this does not seem like a good RX for my problem. And if I take only as needed will it really help the pain?

You are having muscle spasm problem. Baclofen is a muscle relaxant drug. So this drug can help in muscle spasm. So you can take this drug if prescribed by the doctor.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
