Recently, informed my GP how tired I've been feeling as of late. He ran the usual bloodwork and checked tsh, CBC etc. I have Hasimotos but tsh usually runs high normal, but not high enough to treat yet and the rest was in normal ranges. Maybe not optimal, for example, my iron could've been a bit higher. So, he gave me some samples of Nuvigil (Armodafanil), from which I understand is in the same class as Risperdal. He wants me to come back and get bloodwork done, which I figure is to check lft's and I alsoI have a fatty liver. I'm not so sure I want to take anything that may hurt my liver. Plus the fact, I take Citalpram for anxiety and they interact with each other and when I brought that up, he just shrugged it off. I guess what I had hoped for was that maybe he could pinpoint a deficiency or something that would cause tiredness and not necessarily give me meds that would treat the symptom and not the cause. Though after thinking about it, it might be nice to take something that may give me a little pep and hopefully decrease the brain fog I have too. Any advice would be appreciated! Has anyone ever taken this drug and is it hard on the liver or am I worrying for nothing?
