    Alesh,

    That's one of the things that are so hard to sort out with this illness. We seem to react differently to treatments. It's pretty much a guessing game and you don't really know until you tried something if it's going to work for you.

    Anti-depressants never worked for me either- usually made me worse.
    For example the drug Xyrem helps many patients with their insomnia and gives them quality sleep where they wake up feeling refreshed. When I went on it, I had such a bad reaction - it nearly killed me.

    I feel your frustration. Being ill for 13 years is terrible! Do you have a doctor who understands what you are going through?
