I have read that a person can have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome without depression, but that oftentimes antidepressants are prescribed off-label to relieve the symptoms that go with it. There hasn't been a concrete diagnosis for CFS, for the most part doctors just have to go by the symptoms a person is displaying. Some people have fibromyalgia along with it, but not always. Can anyone share what treatment has helped with it?
I wonder if Wellbutrin SR is used to treat it, because in my case, it seems to relieve a lot of the symptoms I have read about that accompany CFS - the achyness, back pain, muscle aches, the extreme fatigue, the digestive issues, the mental fogginess, etc. I read that effexor has also been prescribed to treat this particular condition - CFS.
Any suggestions?
