  • Perceived effectiveness for Stiffness/Spasticity: Moderate
  • Perceived effectiveness for PLS (Primary Lateral Sclerosis): Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 10 mg Twice daily
Advice & Tips: Remember to take with or as near to eating food as possible. Especially when first starting or changing dose. If your doctor does not recommend it then I would suggest starting on a low dose and working your way up. When I first took this it upset my stomach on a low dosage and as I increased dosage it upset my stomach again. Also it is recommend not to drink alcohol. Apparently this is also used to treat alcoholics as can make you feel very nauseous when drinking alcohol and taking these.
