Chronic Fatigue

So I got Modafinil precribed for it but I'm loosing weight anyone know something better?

  1. Is the modafinil supressing your appetite? If that's the issue, I'm not sure if any available alternatives are going to be any different.

    Modafinil has been a game changer for me (I call them MS Tic Tacs), but there was a habituation period required.

    1. , I know this may seem like a silly question, but have you talked to your doctor about your weight loss? Usually, that's a good place to start, but I know many of our members consult their doctors before they post here. Like mentioned, Modafinil sometimes have a "breaking in" or habituation period before your body adjust to it.

      The most common alternative I am aware of is Nuvigil (armodafinil) and I know some of our community members use it or have used it in the past.

      I do hope your doctor has some helpful suggestions for you as well!

      Best, Erin, Team Member.

      1. I would definitely mention the weigh loss to your doctor, while it may be the Modafinil, it could be something else too and just seem like it's that. As for alternatives, some people have better luck with Nuvigil. Some also have good luck with adderall.

        1. Thanks Devin for getting back to me I will ask Pharmacist tomorrow, anyway Devin I'm taking it because of my MS maybe wr can stay connected so Devin I got a message from Dr.ayomide from Nigeria telling me that he can fix the damage that MS has done to my body in 14,yes 14 days I'll probably be ordering it near future so Devin do you have MS too?
