  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: None
  • Perceived effectiveness for Nerve pain (neuralgia): Slight
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 300 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: It helped the nerve pain I was experiencing for a bit but since I was mis-diagnosed this drug would never have helped me since my problem was not a pinched nerve but severe osteo-arthritis in my left hip. I took this drug unnecessarily for a year because I just hoped it might be doing something. Wishful thinking was all I was swallowing..
