Stimulants to combat severe chronic fatigue?

Anyone been put on adderall or methylpenidate or similar stimulants for treating their chronic fatigue that comes with intestinal disorders? I have a severe case.

I can barely function and I think I'd much rather be put on a low dose just to be able to function, stay employed and provide for my family.

Anyone out there can offer advice or experience regarding this form of treatment?

Interesting idea. Definitely worth a try in my opinion! You shall know pretty fast if these can help you. I think these drugs are effective right away (same day) as opposed to anti-depressants that can take weeks to produce an effect.
