  • Adherence

  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
Advice & Tips: Tylenol is fine for occasional but I think making people with MS take it constantly is a bad idea. I have been relying on this for years as a back up to Ultram as Ultram only treats nerve pain. I know that my liver is not going to survive without damage for much longer at this dosage.
