Advice & Tips: This was the most effective treatment that I have ever had for my fatigue. I also suffer w/ADHD, so there was the added benefit of getting a gliimpse of how the other side lives, so to speak. For the first time, mentally, I felt almost normal. But then my doctor started acting funny and wouldn't prescribe it anymore. Since, I've not found anyone to give me a prescription for Ritalin or Adderall.
