I go to school at 7:30 a.m and get home at 5 p.m. I have about 3-4 classes each day. When I get home, I can barely catch up on one of the tv shows I like, and at 6- 6:30 I'm asleep- till the next morning at 7. This has been going on since high school and I'm in college now. I had Iron deficiency, but the medications didn't help me with feeling less tired. My friends go to school, take out side classes, work out, go out, and all I do is sleep!!! I'm so desperate, I might start using drugs like... you know... to feel high or energetic! I'm so tired of being tired.
I always feel tired, is there a drug that will give me energy? (I'm a full- time student)?

Do not use drugs, all that does is make more problems. Have you had a full physical? Some people can't do as much as others. I have fibromyalgia and I was like you in school, I just couldn't keep going. You need to see a dr and be checked to be sure nothing is wrong, then work from there. B-12 and folic acid help with being tired if you're anemic.
Your Dr can order a simple blood test and should check your hormone levels, vitamin D levels, and for any autoimmune disorders (like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus). A sleep study might also be helpful! It could be depression as well, do you have any depression symptoms?
