in the '50 md's tx'ing n. symptoms such as eds/fatigue rx'ed the amphetamines far more readily than they do today. the mg/d amts rx'ed today of same are virtually always tiny-if they are rx'ed at all if no response to nuvigilis had in n. patients w/eds/fatigue. back then if your meds didn't have you wakeful enough to read or watch tv in the evening your md would normally titrate up same, if they gave you insomnia he or she would titrate down, or stop same depending on the individual.
now pwn who would benefit from same rx'ing(little do so many know they could) practices in the amphetamine department go untreated.
what happened back then? did a few pwn w/amphetamine rx prove unable to handle stimulants, so now the rest of us in whom amphetamines are indicated to tx eds/fatigue, especially in higher doses, are denied tx for our symptoms? regardless of how strongly amphetamine regime is indicated? and if existing such regime is too low for response in patients, are higher doses not rx'ed even w/existing regime well tolerated in patients w/partial response? and if we are not aware of these indications are we made aware, or do we go on enduring eds/fatigue beleiving falsely that there is no tx exept nuvigil and puny-dose traditional stimulants when we do not respond to these tx options?
what could possibly be right about that, if so? ...and here's the kicker-as a group, we lack the energy to stand up for our tx and our well-being and our wakefulness. where will this take us?
oh, well...sweet dreams, all. anybody besides me dissatisfied w/the status quo of n. tx today?
