    Major (for fibromyalgia)
  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Depressed mood)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 120 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: it was great in helping reduce my pain levels. it was only when my insurance stopped coverage, that i had to switch to a different combo, discovering that it wasnt helping my depression/mood levels as much as i needed. so if you have major depression and fibro, i would suggest speaking with your dr about additional meds if your depression is still a struggle, but pain levels are much better.
