I've read this paper. The results look promising on their own.
However, a thread on the (so far unpublished) placebo-controlled trial is here: http://forums.phoenixrising.me/inde...henidate-ritalin-trial-results-are-out.37363/ and the results from that don't look so good.
I am confused by this quote:
"The majority of enrolled subjects also described moderate to severe post-exertional malaise as part of their symptoms profile."
I can't tell if all subjects had PEM but only some had moderate to severe PEM
if not subjects had PEM.
I am also unclear if functional status referred to here:
"...this investigation did not formally measure the treatment’s effect on the subject’s functional status."
is cognitive function or physical or both.
Is this an objective measure? I haven't seen it mentioned in other studies.
No, self-report questionnaire.
This stuff is basically just a stimulant, isn't it?
This also includes various supplements. See Table 2.
