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.

Comment:
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.

This is the second time I have been on this medication. In between my dr prescribed Provigil for my MS fatigue. Neither has seemed to help for very long. This actually helps less than the Provigil did.
