    Goodmorning,

    My new Doc said he wants to try Zyrem to help me get some really great sleep due to all problems associated with FM & CFS. I just did a sleep study and the results showed that I don't sleep well enough for my body to recover (duh!).

    I have done alot of research on this medication so Iam well informed. I just wondered if anyone else has tried it out there (if so, good,bad, or really ugly). Or, is this a really new approuch to sleep for great folks like us.

    Later,

    Gladeone

    Hi Gladeone,

    I've written extensively on this board about my experience with Xyrem, and how my FM/CFS symptoms have virtually disappeared since starting it last year.

    It is a "new approach" to helping the sleep problems associated with FM/CFS - unlike the other stuff that's been used.

    Look for my posts under "Xyrem saved my life"..

    Good luck!
