CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME MEDICATIONS: Because of the condition the patient is in (lethargic and lacking energy most of the time) they can become depressed and withdrawn so several drugs can be prescribed by your doctor. Antiviral drugs (Acyclovir) Drugs to fight "hidden" yeat infections (nystatin) Medications to treat depression (antidepressants drugs SSRIs) Medication to treat anxiety (antianxiety drugs such as Celexia, Paxil, etc.) Medication to reduce pain, discomfort and fever. Some medications can cause adverse reactions or side effects that are worse than the original symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome. Patients with CFS are encouraged to maintain active social lives and mild physical exercise may also be helpful (such as slow walks, working up to longer walks. EXPECTATIONS (PROGNOSIS) The long-term outlook for patients with CFS is variable and difficult to predict at the initial onset. Some patients have been reported to completely recover after 6 months to a year. Others may take longer for a complete recovery. Some patients report never returning to their pre-illness state. Most studies report that patients treated in an extensive rehibilitation program have a better prognosis of improving significantly than those patients who don't seek treatment. Marcy

Where can you fill your prescription for oxycodone 30 mg in Michigan?

At a pharmacy. If you have a legitimate prescription for a medication and a pharmacist does not want to fill it for you, calmly explain to them that you require your medication for the treatment of your medical needs, and ask them to call the prescribing physician, if necessary, in order to verify this. Good luck! Chronic pain can be very difficult to contend with without having to worry about the judgement of pharmacists who are so jaded from encountering drug seekers as to condescend legitimate patients who just want to get their medication and continue to go about their day.
