  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 30 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I think this medication works even better than Savella as I have noticed a much higher quality of life and more energy than with Savella. It still rases my blood pressure, so I take Atenolol and Vasotec, but it's controllable.
Cost: < $25 monthly
