But antidepressants are interesting because they can even help those CFS/FMS sufferers who aren’t even depressed.

‘What??’ I hear you ask.

Yep. Research suggests that certain types of antidepressants (MEDICATION FOR DEPRESSION) help to alleviate the fatigue of ME/CFS sufferers, even if they are not depressed.

In some ME/CFS patients, signs of improvement show after a few weeks!

According to doctors, a low dose of a tricyclic antidepressant such as amitriptylline (MEDICATION FOR DEPRESSION) at bedtime helps promote sleep and improve disturbed sleeping patterns.

According to Dr Charles Shepherd, antidepressants (MEDICATION FOR DEPRESSION) may also help to improve your memory and concentration if you are already depressed (although he is sceptical of how much they might help your memory and concentration if you are not).

Antidepressants (MEDICATION FOR DEPRESSION) certainly aren’t a total cure for CFS/FMS but they certainly can help to improve the quality of sleep you get, your energy levels, and even calm your mood swings.


They don’t work for everyone. There are some CFS/FMS sufferers who don’t see any change, or can’t tolerate them.

That’s not to say that antidepressants will not work for you- but it really does depend on the individual.
