Dosage: 300 mg/24 hours Daily
Advice & Tips: Been taking this every day since last winter, helps to take the edge off, does not take the pain away, but definitely makes it more tolerable. helps with energy level. Medicaid screwed up my paperwork, so going cold turkey on this and like four other meds. Not sure which withdrawals are from what, but I feel like hell. Pain through the roof, depression, exhaustion. Very difficult. Hope they get it fixed soon, though I am not sure which meds I will continue, I am afraid of this happening again, and I have been completely non-functional for over a week now.
