Chronic Fatigue board


Hi all.

I have recently been dx'd with CFS. I was dx'd with FM in 2002, but just the last 6 or so months have been showing symptoms of CFS. My PCP prescribed me Provigil 200mg. You take it once a day, and it helps with mental clarity and fatigue. And for me it DOES help. I don't feel the need to take 4 naps a day! A lot of people worry about sleeping after they take this med, but I have been on Klonopin since I was dx'd with FM, so I can say that I don't have trouble sleeping because of the Klonopin.

Just thought I'd let you all know about this med. I TOO have heard about meds like Ritalin or Strattera for ADD that can help with fatigue, but I think it's hard to convince your doc to prescribe ADD meds. Ask your doc about Provigil, that's all I did, and it was like "no problem". I know how awful it is to feel so stinkin' tired all day, all you do is sleep.


Hope this helps some of you,
