Hi everybody. I am new to this site - new to the possibility of Lupus. I realise that Lupus has many similarities to MS - I have MS and am in the progressive stage. One of the difficulties with MS is also chronic fatigue.
I haven't seen anywhere that Lupus patients are prescribed anything for their fatigue. I may be wrong, as I said, I'm new to this. But for my MS I take a drug called MODAFINIL and it really does help so much with the tiredness. It makes the difference between sleeping 23hrs a day to having some really productive time - as far as energy goes. It's very safe - for MS I know it is anyway - and I just thought IF it could help pt's with Lupus, as long a it is not harmful, people ought to know about it.
