Delta bath faucet-stuck set screw


I'm trying to replace the cartridge on my Delta Monitor bath faucet but can't even get the handle off because the set screw is stuck.
Any ideas on how to get this set screw loosened and the handle off?
Thanks

100% sure your turning it in the right direction?
Is the Allen wrench a nice tight fit? Some are metric.
Instead of steady pressure on the wrench, give it a tap.

Got it. Was a bit of trial and error until I found the right allen wrench.
Thanks!
