  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle spasms: Slight
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 600 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Initial Rx was to start with1 a day, then 2 a day, then 3 a day. Did this over a weeks time, once I reached 3 a day, I became so dizzy that keeping my balance requires me to hold onto walls, furniture, etc. I even use my 50lb dog for stabilization when walking out to the mailbox. Doc insists I continue to take as he says side effects will subside. It has helped the burning sensations in hands/feet and creepy/crawly feeling unde my skin.
