    I've had two tests done the last year. I was told "nothing by mouth" after midnight both times. I think they was to see the effect of the baclofen on your body. Both spinal taps took about 30 minutes. I was wide awake. Definitely no anesthesia. My first test was 50mcg: no effect. My second test was 100mcg. I now have a pump. Good luck!

    It sounds like the protocol for baclofen pump surgery, not the test. It's been many years since I had the test, but it certainly did not involve anesthesia.

    Since it involves being admitted to the hospital as an outpatient, blood tests might be required.

    Baclofen trial

    I am scheduled for baclofen trial in 2 weeks.

    I was told to fast after midnight before trial. When asked why I would need to fast, they said I would be asleep from anesthesia.

    Also told I would need pre admission testing.

    Were these things done before your trial? If not, what is protocol prior to, and day of trial?
