  • Perceived effectiveness for Sleep problems: Slight
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This medication takes away my pain completely. I have built a tolerance so that it doesn't put me to sleep as well anymore but I can take it in the evening and stay up till midnight and have all of that time pain free. I wish it was ok to take this stuff all the time as a pain reliever. I'm going to ask my doctor about all this next week when I see him.
