Has Anyone Tried Rhodiola To Counteract The Fatigue And Have Enough Energy To Get Through The Day?

Has Anyone Tried Rhodiola To Counteract The Fatigue And Have Enough Energy To Get Through The Day?

My neurologist just cleared me to take rhodiola as needed to help with the fatigue. I was curious if anyone else had tried it along with their current medication and what your success was with it.

I take Nuvagil also and it keeps me awake all day, but then I have trouble getting to sleep at night. Then I take it the next day because I haven't slept much, and then more trouble getting to sleep. It's a vicious circle and by the weekend I totally collapse and sleep all day Saturday.

I actually prefer the regular modafinil over the time-release Nuvigil. I generally have no problem falling asleep as the med has generally worn off by then, but used to with the Nuvigil. Just my 2₵.

I too take Nuvigil and agree with Evelyn. It can become a vicious cycle by the end of the week. It does help with the fatigue, but I find that I get really pumped up for a few hours after I take it and that can be annoying. I also find that towards the end of the work week I take it and am physically awake, but mentally a zombie! Sounds bad, but for now I am dealing with it and am able to get through the week.
