  • Effectiveness
    Major (for pain)
  • Effectiveness
    Major (for migraine headaches)
  • Side effects
    Mild (grogginess)
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Advice & Tips: If you really want to sleep through the night in a major way, this is for you. I dropped it a few years back because I felt I was taxing my liver with too many pharmaceuticals and my migraine problem had gone away, hopefully never to return. I have no idea what this stuff costs as I'm a 100% disabled service-connected vet so the VA (American tax-payers) provide all my meds, even those not intended for MS symptom control.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: grogginess
