I tried it for a couple of months, but didn't get decent relief from it. That may have stemmed from the fact that we were still tapering the dose. I had a lot of trouble with nausea, but phenerghan helped with that.
It is expensive, so if your PM can give you the 25 .00 discount cards for it, that does help with the copay.
I hope that you get decent relief with it. Good luck.
