  • 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..

  • Perceived effectiveness for RLS (Restless Legs Syndrome): Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 300 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Need to be careful with spatial judgement. Perhaps it's no real Valium substitute, but I'm much more relaxed generally taking it. Irregular sleep pattern, but have had sleep problem most of my adult life. May be helping with cramp problem in legs and toes. Valium-like properties seem to be wearing off with the side-effects.
Cost: Not specified monthly
