  • Perceived effectiveness for Multiple Sclerosis: Can’t tell
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 200 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I have not noticed it is helping me yet. We are working on increasing the dosage to see if that will help, however I am noting chest pains which I was passing off as heart burn. We are now considering this to be a side effect of the medication that needs to be watched as I increase the meds.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
