This : This is a complex issue. Central nervous system stimulants (CNS) such as Ritalin (methylphenidate) (methyphenidate) and Adderall (dextroamphetamine with amphetamine) are not considered pain medications. However, many medications in the United States are prescribed as "off label" which means they are used for a purpose other than that which the fda approved it for. Depression often goes hand in hand with chronic, severe pain. A drug like Ritalin (methylphenidate) can be used in treatment refractory depression. When depression improves, there is often an improvement in pain level as well. Dextroamphetamines may be added with narcotic pain relievers to reduce the side effect of drowsiness and it is reported that adding a Dextroamphetamine to a narcotic may lead to more potent pain relief. I am not aware of CNS stimulants being treated as solo medications for pain. It should be noted, that medications that fall into these class can be addictive. Thus, the decision to add a CNS stimulant to your treatment plan should be made with an experienced physician. ...Read more

Do you recommend Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) for fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue? My fatigue is way worse to deal with then pain.

Check thyroid: I see many patients with fibromyalgia with fatigue that is due, at least in part, to low thyroid. If you do start thyroid treatment, start at a very low dose and work up slowly because I have seen that many patients with fibromyalgia are very sensitive. Thus they may have symptoms with what appears to be mild hypothyroidism and sensitive to treatment if started too fast. ...Read more
