    Abstract:

    Six young adult patients with grade I myotonic dystrophy and a complaint of daytime somnolence underwent 36-hour polygraphic monitoring, dynamometric and electromyographic studies before and under baclofen (60 mg/daily). Patients with the most severe daytime sleepiness had pathologic Sleep Apnea Indexes. After 6 weeks' ingestion of baclofen, no subjective or objective effect on patient symptomatology was found.
