Most providers who see ME/CFS patients recommend a regimen of supplements. They can include pills, IV, shots and ‘cocktails’. Patients report a range of results with these methods from revitalizing to ‘maybe it helped.’ If you’re seeing a practitioner who has recommended such treatments, be sure that the ratios and combinations of supplements are based on your metabolism. There are tests and blood chemistries that can be run to get an accurate picture of you and your needs for treatment. Many of these treatments can be expensive and it can be a sacrifice to pay for them. If you’re not feeling measurable improvement, revisit your doses and combinations with your doctor.
From my own experience, the first doctor who actually treated me for ME/CFS, relied on his prior experience with ‘patients like me’ and prescribed a similar plan. Although this first step got me to a healthier plateau, it wasn’t until we figured out, through trial and error, what I specifically needed for supplements that I was able to get on the right road to recovery.
