  • Perceived effectiveness for Treat my mood condition(s): Can’t tell
  • Perceived effectiveness for Nerve pain (neuralgia): Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate

  • Perceived effectiveness for Treat my mood condition(s): Can’t tell
  • Perceived effectiveness for Nerve pain (neuralgia): Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 400 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: The side effects were pretty bad for the first week, and another week after we changed my dose. I was very dizzy, had a lot of trouble with fine-motor control (like typing or using a computer mouse), bad dry mouth, and some stuttering/word searching. Everything was just a bit foggy. Thankfully these things went mostly away after about a week at the higher dose.
Cost: < $25 monthly
