Fatigue

Hey, guys. One of the symptoms that I find most irritating - the constant fatigue - has been a bit overbearing lately. I was on Amantadine for a time, and it seemed to help, but it lost its effectiveness after a while. I take several supplements, including B12, and was wondering if any of you had positive experience with other vitamins or medications that assisted with fatigue.


Thanks,

Caleb
