American Standard shower handle removal


I'm trying to replace the cartridge for this shower, but I can't get the handle off. I tried using a flat head screw driving underneath the handle but it doesn't work. Any ideas?Name:  20170506_140753.jpg

The flat headed screw is a set screw, when loosened will allow the handle to come off.

And if it won't budge dip, an old toothbrush in vinegar and brush off some of the calcium deposits that might make it difficult to unscrew (counter clockwise to remove).
