    I remain skeptical about any claims that a stimulant is useful in ME/CFS because it seems to contradict the observation of post-exertional malaise. I expect that those reporting strong positive results will either experience an equally strong relapse later on, or be found to never having PEM in the first place. Follow ups are important here.

    The nutritional supplements are probably going to be mildly to moderately helpful for improving general well being, but far from a cure.

    Wow, more energy and a film I somwhow missed! I am head over heels lusting dazzled by Kevin Spacey! I know, I know, but a fantasy is a fantasy.

    It just doesn't get any better than this!

    (Clears throat.) Sorry, didn't mean to get off topic, but Mr. Stone seems to have a good sense of humor. Carry on, be calm.:whistle:

    Barb who has had way to much caffeine, so I guess this is energy related.:rolleyes:

    Even with such a small dose of Ritalin, over time there is a good chance that tolerance will become an issue if it is taken daily. "Holidays" of not taking the stimulant is the best way to avoid this and it can be as small as taking 1 day of a week. Two to three day holidays or longer are the minimum preferred though, which is normally done monthly.

    They don't work as well either if the patient has a untreated low performing thyroid function.
