Medications for Fatigue

Stimulants

Adderall is great for fatigue. There are other stimulant options but Adderall is the most popular.

Modafinil

It’s a complicated drug that causes wakefulness, used for narcolepsy. When I say it’s complicated, I’m referring to its mechanism of action. It’s not entirely understood.

Anti-depressants

Although they don’t specifically target energy levels, they do tend improve them, especially if any amount of depression is part of the fatigue.

Amantadine

The results are not yet conclusive, but there is some evidence for its use. The majority of its use has been for fatigue in people with multiple sclerosis.

Sulbutiamine

I can’t remember if I included this in the supplements post, and it doesn’t hurt to say it twice. This is a more mild option, which is why it can be bought online.
