I’m due to start work as a school teacher next week after having been away from working life for a year, after 2 relapses last year affected me. I still suffer from fatigue now, but it affects me more cognitively than physically. In the morning I am relatively fine but come late afternoon my alertness & speech are slower.
my ms nurse discussed a drug called amantadine with me, which aims to make people more alert & hence reduce effects of fatigue. This could come in handy & help me during work. However it apparently doesnt work for every1 & there can be a few side effects but the only of knowing whether it will benefit me would be to try it.
I’m wondering what are other peoples experience of amantadine?
does any1 know of any nutrients or goods food which i can eat to give me increased energy & alertnes? I’ve been told that increasing my intake of apples & also nuts as well as eating more pasta will give me added energy… Im a regular monthly user of tysabri. I regularly exercise at the gym. Im 28 years old & clearly dont want to become hooked on medication when there are alternatives. I want the healthiest long term option.
thanks for reading. Any advice is much appreciated
