I have an appointment w/ my doctor in March to ask about taking Ambien for sleep. I am not currently on any medications, had unsuccessful prior attempts w/ Klonopin, Cymbalta, Wellbutrin (allergic) and w/ herbal remedies.
I do need help w/ sleep, but I also need help with my terrible brain-fog. I have such difficulty concentrating, remembering things (even w/ notes to self), etc. This morning, I read about Adderall (normally for ADHD) and that it has helped people w/ fibro with their fatigue and brain-fog, increasing focus and helping w/ motivation. I thought I would ask my doctor about this too. If I don't find a solution, I may need to change jobs - it's getting that bad. Non-med solutions are not working, so it's time to pull out the big guns.
Since I have a month before I can see the dr., I thought I'd ask all of you if you have tried either one of these - or both at the same time - and what you think of them?
In addition...what do you do for your blurred vision? Do glasses or contacts help with this?
Thanks for any feedback!
