Answer

Skeletal Muscle Relaxants

Muscle relaxants may inhibit the transmission of monosynaptic and polysynaptic reflexes at the spinal cord level.

Baclofen (Lioresal, Gablofen)

Baclofen (Lioresal) may induce hyperpolarization of afferent terminals and inhibit both monosynaptic and polysynaptic reflexes at the spinal level.
