Hi, I'm new to boards and I'm not too sure if this is in the right place so mods, please feel free to close or move.
I'm currently being treated for RRMS with betaferon, and have my second bout of optic neuritis in the space of one year, for which I'm receiving IV methyl prednisolone (previous time I lost all vision in my right eye and began to lose vision in my left).
Anyway, my neuro wants to start me on provigil for extreme fatigue, but as I'm already on topamax 100mg for migraines and the betaferon, I really don't know what to do. I'm not looking for a yes or no answer because it is ultimately my decision or any medical advice but if anyone has any personal experiences of this drug for its marketed use for narcolepsy or uses it as part of their MS treatment or has prescribed it to someone and can give me an idea of what their reaction to it has been like, any advice would be much appreciated. I've looked up the literature, I've read the pro's and con's, now I just need opinions because my friends just laughed and said 'legal speed' which is ironic seeing as prior to september I didn't so much as take a painkiller!
Thanks a million
