Advice & Tips: While on this medication make sure you are very careful on the things that you do. YOU WILL bruise to the slightly touch and there isn't anything you can do. So make sure your house is safe, almost like a "child safe house" so this way your not running into corners of tables and/or corners of counters. There was a lot of times I would just roll over in bed and my hand would hit the wall by accident and I would wake up with a bruise on my hand. I also was on a C-Pap machine for breathing and if you are on one of these the mask WILL bruise your face easily. I found it to be a big pain being on this medication because of how easy the body bruised.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
