Is anyone on this and if you are have you had any side effects
I use to be on Modafinil, but found I was grinding my teeth and clenching my jaw a lot, the were good for the fatigue, unlike the amatadine I'm on now, they just take the edge off the fatigue, the apple cidar vinegar and alien Vera juice also help ☺
Amantadine was originally for Parkinson's for movement disorders & they found on Some people it gave increased energy or wakefulness.. I was put on provigil by a top Dr at Jefferson university in Philadelphia. Just info to take or leave.
I take Aderall for my MS fatigue. Twice a day and I'm totally happy with this medication prescribed by my Neurologist.
I'm on amantadine too! I take two in the morning and can take another if needed at lunchtime/before 2pm.... I think it might help, I'm unsure..... But I don't want to discontinue, just in case it does, if that makes sense? I know what you're saying @A MyMSTeam Member about more pills, but it might be worth trying..... I feel we should try anything that might help, rather than worry about how.many pills we take. As you can tell I've had to stop minding.... That's because I take 4 different ones just for blood pressure! But whatever it takes is my view as long as they're not contra-indicated please be aware GPs don't always check that! Xx
Hi @A MyMSTeam Member I take Amantadine 2/100mg at with my other medication, it is only my opinion only it does help me to a certain extent, but I would always advise you and anyone else please take medical advice. I'm on 41 tablets a day with morphine, sativex and longtec, I'm only 38 years old
