Dosage: 120 mg Daily

Dosage: 40 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Talk with your Dr. always on the needs for medication/ the why. This medication can be altered. More in the evening less in the morning (or when you are affected the most) take some mid day, etc. This med dose cause fatigue- which added to MS does not HELP the situation. BUT being tired and not having pain is a bonus. Often your Dr can prescribe (and often does anyway) something for fatigue. Drug does come in generic to save money.
