Default Medications for Chronic Fatigue

Has anyone ever been put on prescription medications to fight the chronic fatigue/fog?

I've been reading online that sometimes, ADHD medications like Ritalin, or medications used on people with narcolepsy (like Provigil) are sometimes used to help with chronic fatigue, but I'm not sure how many doctors out there get behind using them for fibro fatigue.

Any of y'all ever been on Ritalin, Provigil, Focalin, Concerta, etc. for your fatigue?

I don't know if there are any that specifically target fatigue. You can get Vitamin B boosters that will boost your energy. I would strive to find another way through diet. exercise. lifestyle and even homeopathic before I go down that route.
