  • Effectiveness
    Can't tell (for optic neuritis)
  • Side effects
  • Adherence
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 30 min Daily
Advice & Tips: It is not difficult at all. I just started so I don't yet know how effective it may be long term. I wear them while watching tv, reading, and using the computer (right now) Cost depends on style, one time expense.
