Dosage: 250 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: It's not a difficult regimen to follow. A once a day caplet. I'm not sure if you can build a tolerance to this medication, but it seemed to become less effective over time. It's also a little bit pricey as medications go. With pretty good prescription drug coverage and using mail order pharmacy it was $33.00 a month. Without coverage it can run nearly $500.00 a month.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
