  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 20 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I'm not sure how to evaluate because a couple meds were tweaked and I have more alertness and a slight increase in appetite but I'm not sure which drug helped. I actually take this one for spasms and I don't have them anymore, but that wasn't one of the choices I was given.
