In case my Doctor needs some motivation to try me on this med. I don’t like stimulants or Stratterra, this might be my last try with meds.REPORT ABUSEFebruary 22, 2012 at 12:18 pm #112573February 22, 2012 at 2:56 pm #112574

There hasn’t been much talk about Amantadine on this site – don’t know much about it. I guess you’ll have to educate us?
In googling around, it seems like there are people using it and liking it, but not a lot of studies done.
It seems like doctors don’t like to prescribe stimulants, so you might have an easy time getting a non-stimulant…REPORT ABUSEJuly 1, 2012 at 2:06 pm #112575

I don’t know if this might help your case or not…. I have multiple sclerosis and amantadine is one of the 2 “go-to” drugs to battle fatigue. I took it several years ago, before being dx’d with ADD but I didn’t feel like it was really doing anything. I was focused on fighting the fatigue, so I really can’t address its interaction with the ADD….
This is interesting though… I’m on AdderallXR (30mg) and find that it runs out after about 4 hours on work days (I’m a teacher). I may run the amantadine idea by my neuro.
