  • Perceived effectiveness for Stiffness/Spasticity: Slight
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 20 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I only take one at night and one in the morning...but the time I notice most spasticity is when I first get out of bed in the morning...so I feel that it really does not benefit me much. I suppose I could set the alarm for a few hours before I get up and take one in advance?!?!? Whatever.
