Has anyone been prescribed adderall due to extreme fatigue from their lupus? My fatigue is seriously debilitating. My Rheumy has tried everything from supplements to narcolepsy meds, and the only thing that remotely helps is high doses of adderall.
Mornings are very tough to get up. My work schedule is soon changing from having to be in at 10am to being in at 7am! Eeek! Big change. I've done it before it didn't work out... But now I have no choice but do it or loose my job. What helps you get going in the morning ? Does the gym really help or make you more fatigued ?
Has any of your doctors ever put you on any type of "stimulant" medication to help with your fatigue/lack of energy?? I've seen people on phentermine, adderall etc. Just curious to learn what your doctors are doing for your fatigue. :-)
