I thought I’d give an update on a thread I started recently (sort of). It’s this one -
So, I had an appointment with my MS Nurse and we discussed the feeling tired constantly.
I really came prepared because all of your responses to that thread. I asked her about Modafinil and she explained that GP’s are usually reluctant to prescribe it. I don’t really understand why this is. She said the hospital could do it for three months and then pass it on to the GP to carry on prescribing.
She then talked about Amantadine (I played dumb here even though I was aware of it, again, thanks to you guys). She said that I should try that one first; the GP would be more likely to prescribe it. She did say if it didn’t work, I could move onto Modafinil.
So, I agreed to try the Amantadine. She will be sending a letter to my GP asking her to prescribe the Amantadine. Fingers and toes crossed she agrees. I do hope it works but I’m also glad that Modafinil may be an option incase it doesn’t.
Sadly, my MS Nurse will be leaving soon but I really hope that whoever, if anyone replaces her, they will continue where she left off.
Anyway, I’m really glad this forum exists and that something is being done!
Thanks for reading about my sleepy woes,
