  • Perceived effectiveness for Pain: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Slight
  • Perceived effectiveness for Muscle spasms: Major
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: This provided good pain relief for me with my muscle pain. I used it on a PRN basis only, and only when I really needed it. It did make me drowsy, but it was worth it to me, for the pain relief. Liked this med, but doctor wouldn't prescribe for me any more, possibly due to being on Cymbalta and having elevated liver enzymes temporarily.
Cost: < $25 monthly
