  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 60 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Started at ½ tablet 3x daily for 2 weeks, then 1 tablet, then 1½ tablet, then 2 tablets. At this point, I barely had strength to transfer from wheelchair to bed, to commode, etc. Bladder and bowel control became non existent also, requiring 3-4 changes of clothing daily.

  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I started off with a low dose of 5mg, 2 times a day and after 3 days increased it to 10 as per the doctors instructions and the sadness I went through was so intense and constant for 1 day. I stayed in my room for 2 days because I needed to recover from the day of intense negative feelings. It wasn't normal.
