    Shari- you said on another post you are on ritalin. I tried adderall, ER and had a tough time with it. Did you try adderall, too? How was the ritalin for you at first?

    Jaminhealth- when you started DHEA, what dose did you take? what dose are you on now? THIS QUESTION IS FOR JAMIN, ONLY. I HAVE ALREADY HEARD ABOUT THE RISKS OF DHEA. THANKS FOR YOUR CONCERN, THOUGH.

    Thanks, girls!

    I thought I'd tell you my experience. It helped for the first 2 weeks or so. I have doubled the amount I take and I don't feel any type of difference. I;m going back to the dr soon and will be asking for adderall.

    What did adderall do for you?

    I only tried Ritalin because of its cost. I have no medical insurance, so I have to go with what is cheapest.

    Ritalin does work, however, when FM hits you hard, the fatigue part of it, no amount of Ritalin works - at least in my case.

    If you need to stay awake/alert for work (or whatever) on a day-to-day basis it works pretty good, but I still have crashes!
