  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 1 tablet(s) Twice daily
Advice & Tips: treatment has significantly increased my walking speed and mobility. It also seems to be helping with numbness, fatigue and mental sharpness, though those aren't the reason it is prescribed. In general, everything seems to be connecting better. Now I can feel the pain! Bit of a pain taking it exactly every 12 hours. I use an alarm on my phone and be sure to have it with me always.
