  • Perceived effectiveness for Bipolar Disorder: Major
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 300 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Everyone is different. This worked without the severe apathy at 600mg. P-doc increased it to 900 because that was the therapeutic dose, but I didn't care about SHIT on that dose. Just stopped it. A lot of people find it really helpful. I'm just one person, one experience.
Cost: < $25 monthly
