  • Perceived effectiveness for Stiffness/Spasticity: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 200 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This is the only medication I take that isn't causing me any problems. I have been taking this since 1996, when first diagnosied with MS. One benefit I noticed, is a good night sleep since this dose increase, before I was waking up in the middle of the night with pain and spasms.
Cost: < $25 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Aching burning throbbing body pain: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 1200 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I had lost 40 lbs within a year and had had no dosage change on this rx, so asked the Dr about it. He has had me to gradually decrease my dosage from 600mg in the am to 400 in am, and 900mg in pm to 500 mg in pm. If you do this, do it 100mg at a time. I tried to do it all at once, and my nervous system reaction wasn't pleasant at all. On the upside, I've lost another 8 lbs!!!
Side effects: Weight gain, Constipation
