Hi All, I just wanted to share this as I have been living a new life recently.
I was diagnosed with RRMS in 2003/4, since I have suffered depression and fatigue. The depression lifts and falls all the time but the fatigue was to the point where I had to lie down every afternoon. I had to give up my full time engineering role and ended up in a part time desk job which I had to leave when they moved it geographically and made it full time. I had a phone call from my GP Surgery saying about changing my anti-depressant to a cheaper alternative. They weren’t technically asking if I wanted to change…just that they were changing it. So I came off Excitlopram and started Cipralex. It has been about 6 months on the stuff now and I don’t fall asleep in the afternoons, I have my life back. I work part time PAT testing now and started up my own bookkeeping business. I just simply can’t believe that it was the tablet not the MS that had made life so difficult for >8 years. I had to change my whole life because of the fatigue I felt. I still get tired but no way near as bad as I was. I just wanted everyone to be aware that it may not be the MS creating all the fatigue…it could be one of your meds?? Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks Amanda
