What causes urinary incontinence and depression while on Baclofen?

I have a daughter that is special needs from an brain injury when she was an infant. We adopted her. She is 27 years old. She is on a Baclofen Pump. For the last week and a half she has started having accidents......urine....wetting bed, couch, chair etc. She has had 5 of these compared to about 5 over the last 15 years. She is also having burst of crying spells. She cannot tell us what she feels. Could this be a side effect from the baclofen.

Hello,

It is not related to baclofen. Mostly it is due to neurogenic bladder. Consult a urologist and get evaluated. If symptoms are severe, she might require a catheterisation.

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