    Hi zabaglione,

    Welcome, I’m glad you found us, hope you find this community helpful as we have a lot of options for you to connect to other peers. I am sorry the insurance denied you a potentially helpful medication; I know how frustrating fighting with insurance companies can be.  While you have listed the medications that is known to be prescribed for fatigue I thought some of the other information provided within this link might be of some help http://www.nationalmssociety.org/Symptoms-Diagnosis/MS-Symptoms/Fatigue#section-2

    Best of luck with finding what works best for you! Please post again to let us know how you are doing.  
    Nicole
