I was literally falling asleep on my keyboard at work, and my nuerologist prescribed me provigil..my insurance company wouldn't approve it, so he prescribed me amantadine.. it helped a little with fatigue, but triggered my schizoaffective psychosis, and hallucinations. after that, he put me on vyvanse instead. best decision ever.

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.

Comment:
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.
