> Have you ever tried Ritalin or Dexadrine for the fatigue? It works pretty good for chronic fatigue and even with narcolepsy.

No, they haven't tried these. They were going to do the narcolepsy test on me, but I didn't sleep a large enough percentage of the night when I did my sleep study.

> Take care

No, went and looked it up and saw it was a tricyclic. In my reading on RLS, I've seen that they often trigger RLS. I was on a two tricyclics, started on them for their H1 and H2 properties, Doxipen and then Imipramine. The fatigue progressed while I was on them, it's been about 4 years ago.

One of the roughest things about the medicine trials is that they expect you to be on them for some time to see how they work, one thing and then another easily adds up to years. With the memory issues, it is hard to remember how different things affected what.

Thanks for the questions,
Susan
