Quincy-This is very interesting to read. I have had CFS for almost 3 years now, and have tried a lot of supplements and meds to give me the best quality of life possible w/in the boundries of safety. I have had success with an ADD medication called Vyvanse, and also with saline IV's. Those bring me to about 75-80% of my pre illness levels of functioning. My doctor just brought up dexamethasone as one to try on a limited basis in place of the vyvanse to see what happens. You mentioned that you felt spunky after taking this. Were you wired up? Hyper in any way? I read that 1mg is the average dose, but you are taking 5mg. I agree, the SE's are something to consider when taking anything steroid related, but increasing qualify of life is so valuable. Perhaps one could take this intermittantly to avoid too many SE's?
