    I was taking ritalin as a stimulant and decided to wean myself off. I have been in bed for 3 days. Last Saturday I slept for 17 hrs straight. I have a call in to my doctor to try and go back on the ritalin but she is on vacation. Does anyone have any other ideas to give me some energy? I am about at the end of my rope. Today I got up at 8am and was back in bed at 10am until 1pm. I have been up since then as it is now 4:30pm and I am so tired I can't see straight. Please help if you can! Any ideas will be appreciated.
    Thanks

    I can't help hon, but just replied to bump your post back to the top of the board.

    I get fatigue, but only for a few days at a time. I just go with it and rest. But everyone can't do that I know.

    Hope you feel better soon. Have you tried asking the pharmacist to help? maybe he could recommend something OTC untill your doctor gets back.

    Shalom, Shirl

    I take the sublingual (under the tongue) type, which I order from the Trivita website. A web search for Trivita will bring it up.

    My pills come by mail in just 2 or 3 days. They have given me back half of my life. I have much more energy and I don't need to nap.

    Others on this board are getting B-12 shots from their doctors, or giving them to themselves. If you do a search for Vitamin B-12 in the "search messages" box above, you should get some of the conversations about this vitamin.

    These supplements help improve energy at a cellular level. They do not work for everyone but when they do the difference can be marked.

    Good luck

    Try drinking as much as you possibly can too, it`s easy to get dehydrated and forget liquids. Not diet or fizzy stuff mind...

    Love Pat.
