  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Dosage: 7.5 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: It is a very cumbersome drug to take as it requires frequent trips to the doctor for lab draws. Dosages are always changing, and sometimes they are so wacky that it's hard to keep track of what to take. (I'm taking 7.5mg, 10mg, 7.5mg, 10mg etc) I bruise a lot with it now.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: bruising
