Some of the most common side effects of baclofen include drowsiness, dizziness, and nausea. In most cases, side effects are mild and either don't require treatment or are easily treated. There are, however, a number of potentially serious side effects that should be reported immediately to a healthcare provider, such as chest pain, seizures, or hallucinations.
