    I was given this medication due to sleeping from 16-20 hours per day. I was only on it for two weeks. During that time I did not experience any relief from my extreme fatigue. I had a rash on my inner thigh and it took me that two weeks of it worsening before I read that .001% of people on this medication get a rash. So end of med.

    I just started taking this medication about two weeks ago, after my worst relapse since I was diagnosed with MS. I find that it DOES give me more energy. However, I think the side effects may be bothering me: shakiness, weakness, hand temors... am going to talk to my doctor to see what he wants me to do.

    It takes 100 mg 3 times a day, but this has been a life saver for me! I still have an occational bad day, but overall this is keeping me working and enjoying a normal life
