Wow, I had no idea the Amantadine could take weeks to start working. The Wal-Mart pharmacist said she didn't know, maybe one or two days
I quizzed the MS clinic about it further, and apparently they try this drug first because it is approved by the government for MS fatigue (Canada), and is therefore covered fully. Provigil and Carnitine are not and are quite expensive so we will try them if this doesn't work. When they put the label on the bottle of "warning may cause dizziness" they weren't kidding! I hope it doesn't last long.
