    If anyone has Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, what were the best meds that helped you deal with the fatigue and the pain so you could be productive during the day? This would be extremely helpful to me because I match the symptoms but haven't started treating it.

    my mother has fibromyalgia, very similar. shes is on effexor, zapain, gabapentin and arcoxia.

    These may help, but they are not a miracle cure.

    I am seeing my doctor soon because I have a lot of the symptoms of CFS. I know it's hard to diagnose, and is more often diagnosed only after ruling out other causes. I don't know anything about meds taken for it, other than pain and anti inflammatory meds for the muscle/joint aches and headaches.

    If you think you have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome you'd best see your doctor for a check up, as many other illnesses can mimic the symptoms of CFS.
