  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Can’t tell
  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle fatigue: Slight
  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle spasms: Slight
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 800 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I originally prescribed this medication to be taken TID (three times daily). I couldn't even keep my eyes open. I now take it most every night. I do find a difference when I don't take it. My muscles tighten up more than "normal". My muscles use to tighten up badly to the point I had no function in my legs at least 6 days out of the week.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
Side effects: Sleepiness
