    what's the latest regarding the relationship between ADHD and FM/CFS/ME?

    i know about cheney's work regarding speedy stimulants but, you know, this is a quality of life issue for me and if it helps my brain and my life and gets me out of bed, i'm all for it.

    my life went to hell when GHB was taken off the market. i did really really well. never abused the stuff, took tiny tiny amounts, had pain relief, slept, had a libido, and generally felt really good and came off most of my other meds...... and so of course the frickin FDA took it off the market. sometimes i think the stuff that works that is not pharmaceutical goes underground because it works....

    i have an MD who listens and is very very caring but i'd like to hear the current thinking about stuff like ritalina, adderal, etc.

    thanks
