    Interesting, Clair, I take Provigil to combat my fatigue. I'll be interested in knowing how the Adderall works. I was on Concerta because I have ADHD, but I had to go off when I started the Provigil. Let me know how it goes.

    I was on concerta for a while but these meds sometimes need to be changed just like NSID's to get the best results. I'm now on Vyvanse. They seem to work really well for the scattered brain, fatigue, and all around fog.

    Take it FIRST thing in the morning. Unless you like the night life. LOL

    Good Luck

    I have lupus and ADD and have taken Adderall for a long time, it helps me concentrate and get going in the morning but later in the day can become very tired and during flare ups doesn't help a lot and and become much more tired, so the best I can say is I do better with it then without it.
