Anyone know of any medication that helps with fatigue? Especially while trying to lower prednisone dosage. My rhemuy decided we need to lower my prednisone to help my bones have a fighting chance but it is adding to my fatigue and to make things worse I am off the provigil so none of that to help anymore. I remember reading somewhere about some older drug you can use with plaquenil that is in the same drug class and helps but can't recall what it is called. I know you have to get it from a compounding pharmacy instead of a regular one too.
