Because I have a high opinion of this book, I decided to do a mini-review here. Reviving the Broken Marionette: Treatments for CFS/ME and Fibromyalgia. Haavisto, 2008 This book covers more than 250 pharmaceuticals for CFS/ME symptoms, comorbid conditions, and disease processes. It references formal research, case studies, and opinions from CFS/ME specialists. It is the most comprehensive guide to pharmaceuticals for CFS/ME. IMO, any doctor who attempts to treat CFS should have a copy of this book. And any patient who wants to discuss pharmaceuticals with a doctor should have this book. That was the good news. But the difficulty comes in when one actually sits down to read this book. It's a reference book. Sort of an encyclopedia of medications. This does not help you or the doctor decide what is best for you, what combination to use, or what order to try things. Also, you have to skim the entire book to find which treatments have the highest success rate. I have yet to accomplish this. And, I wish it had been written more like a literature review. IOW, include the key features from each study it cites, so I don't have to look up the abstract on the Internet. Still, what's the alternative. You could read other books which offer a handful choices, but they miss some off the good ones in this book. You could go to a website that offers multi-medication protocols. But you still might want to look up the drugs in this book. So although it does not solve every problem with understanding drug treatment, it is still the best CFS/ME drug reference book I've seen. So what I plan to do is look up the drugs I see other people recommending, and take it from there.
