Stimulants like adderal and caffeine are known for slowing adrenal function and have long term affects on it's function, IBD's do this too and are one cause of the fatigue.
I take 1-2 Country life Coenzyme B-complex first thing when I open my eyes each day when I have had fatigue the prior day. The B12 in this is Methylcobalamin (the form most often in sublingual products), and is more easily utilized by the body. This is also the form that directly affects the central nervios system, and has been a lifesaver for me. I have/do used the sublinguals (especially if I get fatigued mid-day), but feel I need the full spectrum of B Vitimines when I am so low energy.
here is a link to the product info page on the B-Complex: http://www.country-life.com/moreinfo.cfm?Category=15&Product_id=198
here is a link from another product that explains the Methylcobalamin form much better than I can:
I don't know if I would still be here without this product, and it helped so much with the depression too. I wonder if this is why I never got anemic???

Crohn's DG 2003 , symptoms included terrible joint and soft tissue pain, just met first cousin who suffers from Reactive Arthritis-explains sooo much. Followed SCD Strictly 2003-06, then modified by adding new things 10-12 days apart to avoid delayed reactions in the form of arthritis symptoms. Scope on 2-5-09 was great! Doc says no symptoms,No scope for 10 years!!!
