Advice & Tips: This is a controlled substance and many places need at least a week notice in refilling this. To get a new prescription from dr. to pharmacy was a pain in the but too. It had to be mailed and not faxed which took longer & this is a newer medication &not many places in our area have heard of this medication and have had to look it up to see what it is.

Advice & Tips: This is a very new medication just put out. My doctor I just got had to look it up because she had never heard of it before and neither did the hospital she works for and the one I went to in December. I have had alot of side effects on this in which my old neurologist would not take me off of previous meds. due to side effects and he would do the same to this medication and this was causing more severe reactions. Currently i am trying to get off of this medication to a more safer one.
