I’ve just had an appointment with the Specialist MS Nurse and one of the things we discussed was fatigue. She has suggested Amatadine. Does anyone else take Amatadine for fatigue and if so, how do you find it?

Any comments/replies welcome.



I had Amandatine suggested for my fatigue when first diagnosed - had to wean myself off it though, it did work on the fatigue but made me a twitchy, sleepless mess at the same time - gave me insomnia like a good’un. Two hours sleep wasn’t unusual, and then I still had to get up and go to work! I decided it wasn’t worth it, eventually. Might be different on someone else though - it does work…just not for me.

Thanks for your reply Jane. Sorry it didn’t work for you.


That’s not to say it won’t work for you, though… maybe we need a new abbreviation, SIAS. Suck It And See.
