  • Effectiveness
    None (for fatigue)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    A little hard to take
Dosage: 100 mg Twice daily
Advice & Tips: 2 pills daily but the second pill before 2pm. 2pm is inconvenient and easy to miss. I either take both at breakfast or the second at noon but I have forgotten altogether and taken the second at as late as 9pm. I have 0 side effects (like insomnia) but then I've seen NO reduction in fatigue either.
