  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for fibromyalgia)
  • Effectiveness
    Major (for myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome)
  • Side effects
    Moderate (weight gain)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 200 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: POSSIBLE unexpected results: improved incontinence (went off of Cymbalta around the same time, so not sure which, if either, was to credit because I am beginning to see a decline) Neurontin, although much cheaper, seems to be far less effective. I have lost my prescription coverage through my husband's health insurance, so I can no longer afford Lyrica.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
