    Severe
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
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.
