Now that Cylert is unavailable what is being prescribed to help ward off the fatigue and help clear the fibro fog? Why?

I have taken a small amount of Provigil in the morning (only) for fatigue and brain fog. I'm not taking it right now because the symptom of the month is anxiety. When I take it, I think it works very well,.

I personally have had great success with chocolate... but not the traditional chocolate on store shelves -- rather a healthy chocolate. There are lots of people who are having success with this cold-processed chocolate -- which preserves the antioxidant value of the cacoa bean. Check out this link -- there are lots of weblinks which explain the benefits -- which extend far beyond fibro!

i can't get a doctor to prescribe provigil or ritalin or ANYTHING for fibro fog and fatigue... i live in alaska and i have pain meds, but nothing for the fog and fatigue. any suggestions?

Yes, you can use sublingual B12 with folic acid for energy. The folic acid component is important because it helps you absorb the B12. I use a combination of 400 mcg Folic acid and 1000 mcg B12. I keep the bottle on my bedside table so I can use it before I try and get out of bed in the morning.

For fibro-fog, you can try a supplement called phosphatidylserine. The best deal I have found on it is at Puritan's Pride which sells vitamins. They have good sales with 2 for the price of 1 etc. They call this supplement "Neuro-PS." I use 200mg but it comes in other strengths.

Both of these items were suggested to me by my nutritionist. As with any medication, make sure that you understand all of the risks associated with using these items.

I hope that this information is helpful to you. Happy holidays.

Decongestant (Phenylephrine) and Expectorant (Guaifenesin) together work.

Most of us have too much acid, but not stomach acid - try putting a little baking soda in your drinking water.



my rheumy acutally did a study with Provigil and found great success with the fatigue. I do not take it every day...only when I can't seem to wake up or stay awake at my desk. Sometimes 1/2 tab sometime a whole one. Feel more alert within 30 minutes and usually last for several hours. if I take it after 12pm i do the 1/2 tab so that I can still sleep at night
