My Neurologist gave me Amantadine for Fibfromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, he said this would give me energy, but I am sleeping 16 hours a day. Is this normal? Can I take an over the counter energy pill to help me give me the energy I need? How long can I expect to wait for the side effects subside and the energy I need to function in life?

I am not aware of it being used for such, nor is it an approved use listed by the FDA. They actually list its typical side effects as possibly including dizziness, and drowsiness.

Looking over the other listed side effects, such as mental depression, fainting, memory loss, stupor, anxiety... well, I really can't see how he expects it to give you energy.

Everyone is different, so there is always the possibility it may cause the opposite of the normal side effects, but that isn't very common.

How long have you been taking it?

Is anyone else familiar with it for this use?

Many Neurologist give Amantidine off label to increase energy in patients with chronic diseases like MS, and Parkinson's. I've heard and seen 2nd hand that it works subtly taking a couple weeks to go into effect.
