... I am in the process of undergoing intense use of my affected side (I have mild spastic hemiplegia on my entire right side).

... Hey guys! I am 42 with spastic L hemiplegia. I get BOTOX shots to relieve spasticity, and I take ti****dine (zanaflex), which works rather well for me. I was offered baclofen but they (docs) decided that the sedative effects would be more of a negative effect than the good the drug would do for the spasticity.
