Hi, first off let me elcome you to Healing Well!
I don't have CFS or Epstein Barr, but I have Fibromyalgia and this has caused me a world of trouble with extreme fatigue. None of the anti-depressants they gave me did much for the fatigue. I was falling asleep at my desk at work, in the middle of conversations with people, pretty much anytime anywhere. Then my doctor prescribed Provigil and it has made a big diffrence. I feel much less fatigued and I'm able to stay awake most days, I don't feel like I'm dragging myself around as much anymore either. I haven't had any side effects with it, it doesn't make me jumpy like the aderall they gave me before did. I am wondering if anyone else here has tried it and what it has done to help their CFS or EB symptoms.
Again, welcome to Healing Well, I hope you get some answers soon, good luck.
