Hey all. I just had a appt with my rhuematolgist 2 weeks ago. I asked him if we could try me on ritalin. He said that it hasnt been approved by the FDA as a treatment for FMS, and that he could't prescribe it. Where do I go now. I need a medication that will help with the fatique from _____. And my memory isn't so good either. My son takes ritalin for ADHD. I dont condone taking other peoples medications, but I did try it for a couple of days. It made a big difference. Now, I am back to my tired self. Any suggestions? Thanks.
