  • Effectiveness
    None (for fatigue)
  • Side effects
    Severe (restlessness (akathisia))
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Dosage: Daily
Advice & Tips: Check out possible contra-indications with other medications you may be taking. This Rx has worked great for some to combat fatigue, but I became almost suicidal on it. Not worth the risk for me. Fortunately, with a mental health background I knew there was a serious problem for me... but for those who aren't aware that their morbid thoughts could be drug interaction related, it could be a dire situation.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
Side effects: restlessness (akathisia)
