    Thanks so much for your replies Cactuscat and Kim <3

    Cactuscat – I can only say from my own experience, but I can only function and focus with my ADHD medication. I would say to your husband that it is a lifelong condition that starts at birth and not a childhood illness.

    Kim – good to know there are people that care on here – was starting to lose hope.

    Hi Hawkgirl

    I have been diagnosed with ADHD/Anxiety/Depression but not CFS.

    Fatigue has been a massive issue through my life – it’s as if I could sleep at any given opportunity, even after a good night’s sleep!

    My husbands family find it amusing that I need to have at least one nap in the day when we all go on holiday.

    The way I describe it is like I have an energy bar above my head needs “recharging” so I can function. If I am around people and need to “recharge” I feel very uncomfortable/spaced out/on edge if I am in a situation where I can’t sleep.

    Hi Penny thank you for your reply.

    The prescription I was given, was for the whole Titration period upfront.

    The Titration was described by the nurse as follows, when referring to a form I have to fill out at the end of each week:

    “This form is to help us monitor your response to treatment on a weekly basis as the dose of medication is increasing.”

    It did seem to me as if it was inevitable and had been pre-decided that I would be ending up on the higher dose.
