Fatigue from Fibro

Sep 26, 2017 11:20 AM

Just wanted to ask if anyone is taking anything for fatigue from Fibro. What are you on and does it help? I have an apt for a psychiatrist and I would like some ideas to discuss with them.

I take magnesium. It helps with fatigue but not pain.

I take that at night before bed, it makes my muscles relax and able to fall asleep.

I am going through the same thing and my cousin said her psychiatrist prescribed adderall for the fatigue. I don't know if I wanna ask about it or not but my fatigue is so bad that right now I'm willing to try anything.

I take the magnesium as well.

At Painedlady- I totally agree with you. I've been taking B-complex and Vit D for years. I know it's supposed to help, but I can't tell. I would hate to know what I would feel like off of those vitamins if they are helping. The cognitive function is the pits. I remeber having a sharp, on point mind and now it's like "Oh look a squirrel! What was I saying?". Sometimes I forget where I'm going when I'm driving. I know where I am, but forget my destination. I write lists for everything, it doesn't help when you forget the list.
