I have been prescribed Symmetrel 100mg for fatigue. Can I take this only if I am feeling fatigue, or do I need to take it everyday to give me the best results? I have not taken it yet. My other medication I take is Laroxyl 100 mg a day. Thank you in advance.
Amantadine (brand name Symmetrel although everyone uses generic) works best if taken regularly for fatigue. However, some people feel that the benefits diminish with daily use and only take it Monday through Friday when working or going to school
