Is anyone currently taking or has taken Amantadine for MS fatigue? I was wondering how long does it take before it starts working? I took my first dose yesterday, but I still feel so exhausted. Thanks, Kelly
It's very odd. After I took it yesterday, I was even more tired than I typically am during the day. It's supposed to do the opposite. I'm hoping that maybe it just takes a while to build-up before it starts working.
Adderall is available as a generic and cheap ($2.50 for 90 days.) I take it for ADD, but it has the added benefit of keeping me active and alert for about 8 hours for a 15 mg dose. I get it through my psychophamacologist.
Hi Bob, Adderall (adderrall) is an amphetamine, right? Do you have any weird side effects from it? And do you think you can become addicted to it? Our nurse coordinator and my neuro set me up with the one I'm on now, first, because they said all of the other ones are amphetamines.
I haven't heard of this one before, so I'll have to look it up. That's really inexpensive compared to some of the prices I've seen out there for Provigil.
Amphetamine make me a little afraid....
