fatigued and wants only to stay in bed all the time?
That is exactly why my psychiatrist prescribed it for me. Not all doctors agree with that method, but it was a last resort for me when no matter how hard I tried I just had no energy, motivation, and was extremely tired all the time. Like kaismama said this usually is a sign of depression, but if antidepressants, anxiety meds, and counseling are not enough to get you moving it may be used by some. I don't take it anymore, but I did for several months with great success. Some of my medications, including the adderall, were discontinued in order to test for and treat other illnesses. The adderall can affect some blood tests and interfere with some medications. You will find that if you are taking an antidepressant the interactions checker will tell you that there is a major interaction btwn it and the adderall and that it is not recommended, however as with most meds & treatments you have to out weigh the risks and benefits. I hope this helps :)
