  • Perceived effectiveness for trying to get scrip - delay progression: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for slow deterioration: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: increased mental alertness, less fatigue than normal, slight decline in fvc [2%]. initial effects similar to too much caffeine but only lasts 48hrs. currently on 10mg in am, 20mg in pm with no effect on sleeping on cpap - actually, sleeping better. dietary change around the same time to increase protein intake via drink supplements and eating more. much less fatigue but still in a chair most of the time. can still just get up and walk flat and level with a stick a little way - surprised because last week i thought it was all over for walking. fascics still there but not so noticeable.
Cost: $100-199 monthly
