  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for fibromyalgia)
  • Side effects
    Mild
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 3 x 325 mg-5 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I increase or decrease this dosage according to pain levels at the time. I watch the timing and never use more than prescribed. I will take 1/2 pill when I need to drive anywhere or if Mom needs more care. I take 1 whole most of the time, but they tend to make me drowsy. I will take 1 1/2 when pain is really bad. I also try to alternate with tens unit, otc pain patches and ointments, and sometimes Aleve in addition (w/Dr. approval)
