Is Anyone Taking Adderall For Fatigue?

Is Anyone Taking Adderall For Fatigue?

My old insurance covered Modafinil but my new one won't. My neuro brought up Adderall as an alternative but said he doesn't recommend it because it can be addictive. Just wondering if anyone here is taking it and what your experience is with it?

I take Adderall every day. I cannot focus without it. I wouldn't be able to have a conversation, work (I work very part-time), organize and do what I need to get done without it. The only people I've ever known to take it, took it for the purpose of taking it for a long time, for MS, for ADD, ADHD. I am very grateful for it. I get a few hours each day that my brain works.

I have to say that so far I'm not having any side effects. Helps throughout a good part of the day but by the end of the day, I definitely feel like I could use a boost again. Maybe 10 mg isn't enough?

I take 30mg in the morning. XR 20mg mid day. And 30mg at 3:00.

I'm sitting here fighting fatigue bad.
I'm always extremely tired. I can barely do a few household things. I barely make it to the grocery store.
I'm 32 and can barely do anything.
My doctors head nurse just ignores me. I'm at the point where I don't know what else to do.
