Comment:
I find this medication to be more helpful than the Provigil I used to take. I take it about 10 AM and then again about 2:00. Some days the fatigue still controls my life and keeps me inactive, but I am functioning better on Amantadine than on Provigil or no drug at all.

This medication has given me the ability to function and take care of my 2 young children. But like any autoimmune disease, I have to pace myself and my energy. This medicine helps me get out of the bed so I can function.

I like Amantadine better than Provigil or the non-perscription tratment Acetyl-L-Carnitine. I do wish there was something stonger with no major side effects.
