Darren, sorry it took me so long to reply, I only post on days I am not so sick.
The meds I take are not for CFS but for different symptoms I have like depression, insomnia & sleeping issues. There are no meds for this illness but I do take some supplements to help with my energy & cognitive issues. CoQ10, magnesium malate, I am going to go back on B12 to see if that will help. I tried it for awhile but went off of it during a really bad bout of depression & I don't think I gave it a good try. Others take D3 & L-Ribose just to name a few. I take dark chocolate daily which helps with brain fog & energy. I used to eat 20 grams of 85% dark chocolate, Lindt brand, twice a day. This really helped me but I have switched to Hersheys dark chocolate powder due to the fact that it is cheaper & I am on a fixed income. I am on disability. I haven't seen much of a difference but I may go back on the bars to double check, I just may not be seeing the difference if it is gradual.
Please let us know how things are going with you & when you see your Dr. I dx'd myself with Fibro but didn't believe it when my Rheumatologist said I had CFS, as well as Fibro. It took me about a year & going back to her again to be re-dx'd that I finally gave in. Now, I don't know why I questioned it but I think I didn't want another illness that Dr's just don't get. Oh well!! Take care, hugs, Denise
