has recommended it. It is supposed to help with fatigue and sleep problems. I've been taking it for a couple weeks. Dr. Oz said to start 3 x a day for 3 weeks and then go down to 2 x a day. I'm not so sure if it is working or not because I've really been feeling lousy--still. It doesn't do much for the pain, however. I'm eating between 9 - 12 ibuprofen tabs per day.
I hope this does not seem (nor is it bad advice) I read the same thing I don't think Dr. Oz in any way means to give ineffective advice but you most likely have circumstances (like severe pain) that he isn't fully aware of and does not have a way to know everyone's condition, I think is he safe and conservative, Unless a person has Chronic to severe ongoing pain then they just don't realize that something that simple would not work for people like you ( and me), I think he has some good ideas but I have Chronic pain have broke 4 places in my back the old saying I have heard so many times rings true what works for me might harm you, all I can do is try and give guidelines and encourage and give advice according to what I've been through I hope in some small way I have been of help and a source of encouragement please let us know how you are doing
Hi 505eva. I was reading up on alternative therapies and came across this American Ginseng. It's suppose to help with stress, insomnia,etc. It also may be helpful for fibro. But it's "off-label" for that. Sorry to hear you're still having problems. There's all kinds of other supplements and herbs you can review in the link. I hope you can find something that works!
it sounds like this isn't working for you as I answered prior to this I think Dr. Oz is good/conserative but with that type of pain sometimes this type of thing just does not do the job consider alternatives if you can't continue to tolerate this then you are left with no choice
I've been taking this D-ribose for about two weeks now. The one thing I do notice is that I am getting a little more sleep with my usual nightly dose of trazodone and xanax... and perhaps a bit more energy, but I still have to practice pacing. I never thought it'd do anything for the pain; I was hoping for better sleep and energy. I don't even watch Dr. Oz--- a friend told me he recommended it. I first heard about it from some comments on the About.com fms/cfs site.
