    If CoQ10 improves symptoms, what else should also help?

    Does anyone have any advice that if CoQ10 improves symptoms, then what else might also work, given CoQ10's actions in the cell and ME pathophysiology? If I take 1400 mg ubiquinol it takes a couple of hours to start working, but it pretty consistently helps with some of the worst ME symptoms for...
