    Has anyone been prescribed ADD medication for brain fog? To me it sounds perfectly logical and I can't believe more Docs don't try it yet when I have mentioned it the Docs I have used look at me like I am insane....thoughts?

    I printed off's CFS info and took it to my doc. Mayo said
    that ritalin (add meds) were experimental with CFS. He rxed it for me.

    Dr. Cheney says it will harm a CFS patient. But I have been ill for 26 years
    and I am going for quality of life at this point. I can do much more with the
    ritalin. I take a very small amount .2.5 mg. The smallest tab is 5 mg and I
    bite it in half.

    Odd thing, is that I have tachycardia (racing heart) and take meds for it. The
    ritalin helps keep my b/p normal. My doc has noticed that.

    Seems others take other types of ADD meds.
