So I started my amantadine last Friday and I can’t seem to tell if it is working. I have had the dry mouth and woken more often at night. My fatigue seems a little better on the days I am not doing much, but I still get very foggy headed if I do even the mildest exercise. The upside is that my appetite seems to be a bit reduced.
My husband has made me promise to give it a “proper go” (I have a history of stopping meds as soon as I get any side effects) but I was wondering how long I should give it a go for?
Does anyone have any experience of this drug? I have a friend with MS who says she just takes them periodically when she feels rough but I haven’t noticed any dramatic effect on taking them. Do I need to perservere a little longer or just give them up as no good for me?
Any shared experience would be welcome.
