    I have lupus with profound fatigue and was hoping to get some info on something I saw on the news about a month ago for either a new med or an experient with a certain drug that had great results for people with CFS. Can anyone tell me what the name of the drug is please.

    Thanks.

    I think the only drug they're testing for cfids is Ampligen. Amy

    This is showing some promise for people with CFS. Its primary use is for people on chemo who don't have enough red blood cells. I just a new article on how low oxygen in red blood cells affects CFS. Haven't had time to read it yet.

    Hi Melenie, welcome to the board. Can't help with the drug, but hopefully someone else will be able too.

    Just stopped to welcome you.

    Have you read our 'Home' page? Its possible there maybe an article on this new drug for CFS there. Pro Health is quite updated on all new treatments on FM/CFS.

    Again, welcome and hope we hear from you often.

    Shalom, Shirl
