Has anyone used Amantadine for lethargy/fatigue? If so, what was your experience?
I'm doing well on my current med regimen, but i'm still excessively tired and lethargic. I'm pretty sure my meds are the cause, as well as my inactivity. Stimulants are not an option for me (they make me too moody, anxious, etc.); Nuvigil also makes me anxious and a bit unstable. I've taken Provigil before with some success, but it's quite expensive. With both Nuvigil and Provigil, when I stop taking them, I get that stimulant "crash."
While I know exercise will help, I'd like to take something temporarily to help my excessive sleepiness. I literally have to drag myself out of bed in the (late) morning.
I'd appreciate any feedback.
