I feel constantly fatigued and tired. I've tried b vitamins and Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) but neither helped. What will help?

Need a good eval. Fatigue can be psychologically or biologically based, or both. Start with a good physical from primary care doc. Are you under a lot of stress? Do you sleep well? Are you drinking? Self- medicating (adderal)? Are you working or in school? Are you pushing yourself too hard? Do u have a good social life and family support? Eating balanced diet? Lots to think about. Good luck!
Get med eval. You should see your doctor to have a thorough medical evaluation for medical problems that can cause your fatigue,such as hypothyroidism .

Coming off Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) abuse- self medicated fatigue problem. Would something like provigil be a bad idea?

Need Evaluation . It is not a good idea to self diagnose and it is a worse idea to self medicate. Do yourself a favor & get a full psych evaluation to help clarify the issues. You should also get an evaluation by your primary care doc to rule out cardiac issues, diabetes, thyroid problems, etc., that may be contributing to your fatigue. Note that stimulants are contraindicated if cardiac probs are present. Read more...
Probably. But another solution would be to talk with your psychiatrist about switching to a slow-release, once-daily stimulant like vyvanse, Adderall xr, concerta, Focalin (dexmethylphenidate) xr, or their generic equivalents. Taking one a day, you would then be able to lower the dose with time. Provigil will likely offer you no benefit and may worsen the effects of stopping adderall. Read more...

What causes extreme fatigue? Antidepresants haven't helped and my TSH was normal. I also take 40 mg Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) but still no energy and I must nap everyday.

Proper Sleep Hygiene. Chronic fatigue can have a myriad of etiologies. I would first examine your sleeping habits. Eliminate naps, do not use your bedroom for anything but sleep, no caffeine or sugar products before bed, etc... Furthermore, please discuss having a sleep study with your primary care provider before adjusting or adding additional psychotropics. Read more...

Is selegiline a stimulant? Can I take it to improve my stress, wakefulness and fatigue? We do not have adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) provigil type drug in our country. I am looking for alternative.

Not a stimulant. Used to treat early Parkingson's disease. It has no other valid use in clinical medicine. If you are not anemic and your thyroid and adrenal glands are O.K. try cold showers.

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

Pain and Fatigue. No. Absolutely not. But, the first and possibly the most effective drug for you would be cymbalta (duloxetine). This is nearly the perfect drug for your symptoms. If the sleep clinic you should have been seen by diagnoses you with narcolepsy as a cause of your fatigue then Provigil may be appropriate. But, not adderall. Read more...

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...
