I have had ms for 11+ years and the fatigue over the past year has increasing gotten worse. I do not take anything for it yet, thinking that maybe it would get better. I see my neuro in 2 weeks to discuss this with her. I was wondering what other ms people might take that works for the fatigue. I am so tired of saying that I'm tired. Help please!

have them check your vitamin D levels,
It's 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses.
Hit it.

As has been discsed on this board, fatigue is THE #1 bugaboo about having MS.  And no one can understand the depths of ouur fatigue....only another MS patient can understand the depth of our fatigue.;..
I take a script to help me....Provigil....I take 3 times per helps....but not like the old it is....
Is an EXPENSIVE drug....hope you have a good health plan...
Great luck.

Hi there and good morning... I have tried some meds too, and I am one of those who did not benefit from them..
The only thing that works for me is getting out and going for a walk, that's if you are able to do so...
I at time have to really drag by butt into gear to do so, and for the first few minutes all I want to do is turn back and go home, but then I begin to feel better, and by the end of the walk I find that I have more energy then when I left...
But I have read lots that indicate that exersise was good for helping with fatigue....

just saw neuro today for same problem. begins at 2 or 3 in afternoon and i'm ready to go to sleep at 4:30. his approach was to cut out some meds that might be dragging me down, so getting off clonazepam and substituting a try with botox to get me off baclofen. hope something works! linda
