Thanks for your responses everyone! Uppity and Kimber, thanks for letting me know that I might still need to give it more of a chance to start working. That is a great website, Kimber, thanks so much for posting that link. Looking at those side effects, I do see how my “side effects” can fall into the list of side effects, and I did notice the same thing reading the little pamphlet that came with my prescription. I was curious about other people’s experiences, because I am so sensitive to meds and often get really strong side effects, and wasn’t sure if this was a common reaction or not.
I haven’t taken the Amantadine for two days now, and I do actually notice a huge improvement in my memory, concentration, and spaciness. However, I did go from spending the afternoons awake, but spaced out and pretty much worthless while on the amantadine to…well….asleep. I have also felt a strong increase again in my physical fatigue symptoms of weakness, tremor, and a weird burning sensation in my muscles. Maybe it was kinda working, or maybe that is a fluke, and I seem to really fluctuate in how I am feeling anyhow.
John, thanks for posting about what helps with your fatigue. That’s great that you have no side effects from the provigil and it is effective for you. Whew, that stuff is expensive though. Kimber, does your husband use provigil as well? Are you using anything currently Uppity?
Thanks again for your responses!
