Over het boek
This book contains information about over 250 medications that can be used to treat chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) and fibromyalgia. It is useful for both the patient and their doctor. All latest research breakthroughs are covered, including controversial theories. There are treatments for every symptom and comorbidity, but most address more than just a single symptom. Some treatments can even affect the actual disease process. No matter how severe your illness is, what symptoms you have and how sensitive you are to medications, you can most likely get better.
For every featured drug possible side effects, contraindications and drug interactions are listed. One of the appendices is also dedicated to drug interactions and how to avoid them. The other two appendices cover the possible consequences of surgery and vaccinations for people with CFS/ME and fibromyalgia. There is a glossary and index for ease of use. The book will help you understand your illness and how medications really work. It also contains invaluable information for doctors.
This book can also be very useful for people with e.g. restless legs, migraine, multiple chemical sensitivity, chronic pain, IBS and autoimmune diseases, even if they do not
