  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: As side effects go, drowsiness is one I can manage, but at times the daytime napping really gets old. I'm very lucky that I work from home, so nobody knows if I nap during the day, so long as my work is submitted on time. So far, the increased daytime sleep has not impacted my work.
Cost: < $25 monthly
