Medication list

Here are examples of some of the medications listed in the book "Reviving the Broken Marionette: Treatments for CFS/ME and Fibromyalgia." In addition, the book contains over 200 medications not included in this list. Note that inclusion in the book does not mean that the medication is endorsed/recommended for CFS/ME or fibromyalgia. Some medications are listed because they can be used in refractory cases and others may be used because they have been used for this purpose, but evidence indicates they probably should not be.
