  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Muscle spasms)
  • side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 40 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Another one that was very effective, but the doctor that prescribed it decided that long-term use of this drug wasn't acceptable. She didn't really understand how CFS works, and was interesting in treating the root of the problem. But refused to do anything else. So again I'm left to suffer w/o treatments which I know work best for me.
