Baclofen is the main active pharmaceutical ingredient present in Liofen. Baclofen belongs to a group of medicines called muscle relaxants and is an antispastic agent used for the relief of muscle spasms, cramping or tightness.

Liofen is related to gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), which is a natural occurring neurotransmitter in the brain. It is believed that Baclofen, acts like a GABA that blocks the activity of nerves within the part of the brain that controls the contraction and relaxation of skeletal muscle.
