    Moderate (for fatigue)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden

Advice & Tips: On a day to day basis I found it had no side effects. Recent DAD study suggests that if you have a moderate to high cardiac risk then may not be wisest drug to take. If your risk is 1% and becomes 2 % then thats OK, but for me I had a brother die age 28 of heart attack and then had one myself 8 months after starting. So for me probably wise with new DAD info to swap.
