Hi Blondie37, I have read your posts on the Fibromyalgia forum, I often go there to read posts & see how everyone is doing.
My Rhuemy gave me Provigil for my CFS but I had some real bad side affects so was unable to stay on it. I have heard that it works well for others & I hope, if you decide to try it, that it will work for you. My Dr is focusing on my sleep issues & as long as I get good sleep I can function somewhat. I use Tizanadine (a muscle relaxant) to help me go to sleep & Trazadone to stay asleep. I have almost lost the ability to go to sleep on my own & will have insomnia for days at a time without some help. I use Ibuprofen 600 for pain & citalipram 40mg for depression. I deal with the fatigue & fog on a daily basis & I just received Social Security Disability this last month, this has relieved my stress somewhat & that has helped. I hope you find the relief you are looking for.
Gentle hugs, Denise
