Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

It is unfortunate that your fatigue problems have not improved despite taking Ritalin.

Phosphatidylserine (PS) has been researched and has been found to be effective in reducing fatigue symptoms, in people with post exercise fatigue. So, extrapolating the data to you, it is possible that it could help you too.

Caffeine (commonly found in coffee) taken along with PS could also help you.

Please keep me informed about your progress.
I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
