Yes I've read where some doctors, very few though, have given scripts of
ritalin and other meds like that for hep c brain fog. I asked for it from my
gastro and he refused. My shrink gave me Wellbutrin to help with brain fog and
it did to some degree but wore off after a year or so. I've since stopped the
medication, as it just caused me to take more medication (it kept me awake
all the time, so I had to take sleeping pills or other meds to sleep, etc).
Shrinks are often more lenient with meds for that sort of thing than
gastros, or at least it seems to me.
I had a script for Wellbutrin masking in a smoking cessation program.
Obviously that didn't work, but it gave me a terrible case of the shakes and kept
me awake. Drugs of that class do tend to lead to more scripts for other
things. Thanks for the info. Anne
