Amantadine for energy

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 ...

Amantadine Side Effects

I am a Parkinson's patient & was advised intake of Amantadine with Levodopa. The result was very good for 3 years,but in the 4th year i started losing my vision capability. When i consulted an eye specialist, he suggested that my eyes had to be changed. My wife got scared & took me to a cornea specialist. He asked the name of medication i was on & said will revert back the next day. The next day he advised me strictly to immediately stop Amantadine intake. It took me 1 month to get my vision back. Currently my movement has deteriorated. Can anyone suggest any other drug which fulfills the void of Amantadine. ## Have you consulted your doctor? Since I don't know where you are located, I am not sure what else would be available. I see one medication that's listed a...
