Hi Arraicha,
Just a heads up. The tricyclic antidepressants such as Pamelor and Elavil are sleep aids and can make you feel dragged out the next day - counter productive to taking a fatigue med!


Well, I doubt he'd prescribe a tricyclic, SSRIs are much prefered for the first time, then again, I've read that even SSRIs (like Prozac and Zoloft) can make fatigue worse. I think I'll just be direct about wanting something for my fatigue and let him choose.

That's what I would normally think, too, but my doc put me right on a tricyclic because I also have chronic pain and he thought he'd kill two birds with one stone. But it hasn't worked out so I'm not on anything right now.

Good idea about being direct. I hope all goes well.

Gaulty - I'm glad you've found your balance of training and resting. You've accomplished a lot.

And thanks for the reminder about Green Tea. I've read over and over that it is good for people with MS (but don't ask me for the medical reasoning - it's complicated and I'm not sure I fully understand!). I put in just a little sugar and I don't think it's too bad.

Take care,
Julie
