  • Perceived effectiveness for Fatigue: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 30 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: There comes a point where you have to weight the good and bad less shaking ~ oh that is good but then you give up strength. I Increased from 10 mg 3x day to 31/2 mg 3x a day. Shaking decreased but my arm were so weak. tried 2mg 3x a day shaking increased but strength increased. so back to 3 10 mg a day and that seem to be a good common ground.
Cost: Not specified monthly
