  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Increase effect of another treatment)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 1 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: The only thing I HATE about this medication is the fact that after discontinuing my 1/2 mg. (morning dose) and my 1mg (bedtime dose) is upon resuming that small amout within less than 24 hours it triggers my period to start. I also experienced lingual pain when exposed to a hot water environment such as a bath or hot tub. I also have to be careful of too much sun as I am prone to heat stroke.
