Dec 4, 2011 (Started Feb 15, 2010)

  • Effectiveness
    Can’t tell (for Unable to function)
  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for Fibromyalgia)
  • side effects
    Mild (Sleepiness)
  • Adherence
    Sometimes
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 900 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: It helps a little but I use it as a sleep aid but can't take it more than a few days at a time otherwise I have to use more and more and I do not want to take any pharma meds unless I have to. It often makes me groggy in the AM but not always. I've taken up to 1800mg a day with no difference from taking 300mg a day.
Cost: < $25 monthly

  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for Unable to function)
  • Effectiveness

  • side effects
    Moderate (Sleepiness)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 900 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Have not taken it at the current dosage as of yet, Rheumy told me to add more as I go along since I have trouble with fatigue and I was concerned that taking 300mg 3x a day would have me in bed all day because I have only been taking the Gaba at night. Rheumy says at 100mg tabs I can add slowly to build it up without being tired. My hope is my fatigue and pain levels will be more positive.
