Advice & Tips: I don't manage it very well. Any body reading this will know that a 3x a week medication is just hard. Easier than a one time a week, but still, hard. I am having a hard time taking my morning meds. I think I am unconvinced that this medicine is safe and effective. I think I should be back on placquenil despite the loss of peripheral vision. I have one of the best neuro- ophthalmologists on the planet monitoring my eyes; why am I driving to Birmingham every three months (having someone drive me) if I don't need his help?
Cost: $100-199 monthly
