Is there any medication to help with fatigue?

I need help with this constant fatigue. I can't get enough sleep no matter how many hours I rest. I sleep at work and have fallen asleep driving several times. Is there anything that would help? I exercise and drink water and all that jazz.

My inflammation markers were down but the arthritis has traveled to my hips, so my rheum wanted to up my mtx dose and also add another DMARD. I tried sulfasalazine but got so sick on it. After 10 days, I stopped it, but it feels like my body has been in such a dip since then. I am suffering from debilitating fatigue- I can sleep for 8 hours and then be awake for… read more
