  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Advice & Tips: Potential unexpected benefits: improved incontinence Be VERY careful and take your time weening yourself off, after discussing with dr, of course! Cost kept increasing so I was considering going off of it. Finally, I was losing my insurance and I definitely could not afford to keep taking it! I thought it wasn't helping anymore but, after getting off of it, it appears it was helping after all, unless it is a coincidence that my health plummeted since!
Cost: $100-199 monthly
