Dear customer, Thanks for your question. The maximum dosage of baclofen is 80 mg within a twenty-four-hour period. Even in normal doses this medication may cause side effects such as drowsiness, dizziness, vision problems, or clumsiness or unsteadiness. She is taking more than the maximum dosage and therefore these side effects will increase. Considering the severity of these symptoms which may be dangerous you need to accompany your mum to her doctor or go to the ER immediately. She requires investigations and symptomatic treatment. Also please clarify with her doctor about the recommended dosage of baclofen for her. Take care.
