Thanks for your question. Fatigue is a very vague symptom that can be hard for doctors to work up. I recommend that you speak with your doctor
about this question. It can have a number of different causes, stemming from obstructive sleep apnea
to thyroid problems to cancer and a thousand things in between. Most often, the answer can be somewhat elusive without additional symptoms or something to help with a diagnosis. Once a doctor begins to explore different causes for fatigue, one of the main possibilities is depression
. While many people do not like the stigma that our society sometimes attaches to that diagnosis, the medications that are used to treat it can be very helpful for some people. On the other hand, Vivance and other stimulants in that classification are used for different purposes, and fatigue is not usually the right reason. Although it is a stimulant and will make you feel more focused and awake, it is not appropriate to take this medication on a regular basis unless your doctor finds a clear indication, often ADHD or something similar. Symptoms of fatigue are not usually the first symptom of ADHD. While Vivance or similar medications may make you feel better, it could be just a bandaid rather than treating the real problem. Please speak with your doctor about this question.
