  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Slight
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Never
  • Burden: Very
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: The doctor wanted me to take 1 nightly for a week, then increase to 2 and so on until at a high dose. Side effects can be weight gain but for me, at this low dose, I found I would have some dizziness the next morning and blurry vision so no desire to increase. It does help some to ward off pain so I take it when my muscles are making noise like the next day will be a bad fibro day. Sometimes it prevents a bad day, sometimes it doesn't but I am not taking it as prescribed.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: None
  • Perceived effectiveness for Nerve pain (neuralgia): Slight
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 300 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: It helped the nerve pain I was experiencing for a bit but since I was mis-diagnosed this drug would never have helped me since my problem was not a pinched nerve but severe osteo-arthritis in my left hip. I took this drug unnecessarily for a year because I just hoped it might be doing something. Wishful thinking was all I was swallowing..
