> Hwy, I'm going on year four of Effexor (and other meds) for CFS. . .go for the stock!

How much is the effexor helping you? What other medications or treatments have you found helpful?

I've just completed a sleep-study and will see the doctor regarding this in July. So far it hasn't told me anything I don't know: I'm tired and twitch in my sleep steady. My mother says at least now I have proof that I'm tired! :0

I'm getting B12 shots every three weeks, baclofen for muscle spasms, losec and zantac to help keep everything down, effexor for the brain dysfunction, and tylenol with codeine for pain. I've got another rx for some type of med to help speed up my stomach but so far I haven't taken it, the last type I was on gave me migraines so I'm a little leary.

I've gone through the ADs which had made me worse. The sleep clinic said that they make the twitching worse, thus poor quality sleep and as a result fatigue during the day.

We've just been through a few hot muggy days and heat is a killer for me, plus add a few stressful moments and the hypersomnia is returning. Do you find anything that makes you worse or better?

I'm also doing the talk thing with a psychologists, helps to keep things in perspective. Sorry for carrying on, but there's not many with CFS on this board.
