Brain fog: summary of treatments? How to start?

Posted by HelenInCalif on April 17, 2004, at 14:04:24

If you have brain fog, what would you try to treat it, in what order? There are so many threads here on it here I'm having troubles following it all: has anyone written a good summary thread? If you can point me to the best threads, I'll try to write a good summary post of what everyone says.

A good friend has been complaining of 2 months worth of "brain fog". Fuzzy thinking, inability to use all of his mental capacities, tiredness. He has sleep apnea (treated w/ CPAP machine). He had tried Provigil short term years ago, ditto with dexidrine (also short term use) for an earlier brain fog episode: neither did much. He currently takes no medicines except Prilosec for heartburn.

From what I'm reading, the treatments could be

1. Health and exercise and sleep (already doing this, although he is still overweight)
2. a full medical checkup- looking for abnormal thyroid? Male hormones?
3. ADD treatment medicines
4. ?

any help appreciated
