Can Children Use Gablofen?Gablofen intrathecal injection is approved for children as young as four years old.
What About Off-Label Uses?On occasion, a healthcare provider may recommend a medication for something other than the approved uses. This is called an "off-label" use. The oral form of baclofen (the active ingredient) is sometimes used off-label for the following purposes:
- Chronic hiccups
- Cluster headaches
- Alcoholism or other addictions
- Bladder spasms
- Trigeminal neuralgia
- Huntington's chorea.
In many cases, the intrathecal forms of baclofen, including Gablofen, would not be appropriate for these off-label uses.
