  • side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 0.5 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: My WBC count dropped very low, dangerously low. I am hoping that will be able to return to taking this medication once it returns. The biggest thing is to MAKE SURE you keep your Dr appointments and DO YOUR BLOOD WORK!
Cost: $50-99 monthly

  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 0.5 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Taking this with the rest of your medications is key. The biggest difficultly may be how you receive your medication. If you normally go to the pharmacy and pick up your prescriptions most insurance carries require this drug to be handled through "specialty" pharmacies and delivered by mail ordering can be automatic as long as you set it up and they allow it. The company has programs to help save on costs.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
