XYREM seems to be the gold standard of sleep, for many of us its too expensive or just not approved like here in australia. Why is xyrem so expensive, for those who dont know, xyrem is the drug GHB and it was sold in the 1980s as a bodybuilding supplement and was cheap as chips, it was promoted at increasing deep sleep and growth hormone production, all those things that people with cfs and fibro need. Why is it now so dam expensive?? There are so many cfs/fibro people who whould really benefit from this drug but cant get access to it. I think even if retro drugs help cure cfs/fibro alot of us will be left with damage like sleep problems and nerve pain. We need these sort of meds to function properly. cheers!!!
