I'm Awake!

It's two o'clock and I DON'T feel like I need to take a nap. Could the medication have taken effect that quickly? This morning while driving to school was the first time I did NOT feel like closing my eyes at the red lights. I'm feeling a little dizzy, but hopefully that will just be while my body is adjusting to the meds.

I came home from work and still felt human. I feel like I can handle the rest of the day without laying down. I feel "normal."

Yay, you!!!! Sounds like the medicine is right for you! Kudos to you to having the perseverence to find out what was going on! I'm proud of you!

YUP!! It works right away! It doesn't need to build up in your system or anything. My doctor told me to take 1/2 a pill, that was too much. I cut it back to a 1/4 pill, still too much, so then I cut back to less than 1/8 of a pill. For me it was just a little boost. Will it be that way in 20 years and my MS progresses? Who knows.

It doesn't have a problem w/alcohol either. I found that it made me a little thirsty.

Congrats on finding a solution!!

Hooray for modern medicine! And you, for tracking down the problem!
