OTC Drugs for Managing Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Symptoms

Sunday 1 February 2009’s Adrienne Dellwo asks:

“What’s in your medicine cabinet? In addition to all of your prescription drugs and supplements, you might want to keep certain over-the-counter (OTC) meds on hand to help you manage symptoms of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. They probably won't do much (if anything) for pain and fatigue, but as you know we get dozens of other symptoms to deal with, and they can pop up unexpectedly. It pays to be prepared by keeping certain things available.”

Adrienne goes on to say that “Like many lessons fibromyalgia has taught me, I’ve learned this one the hard way – and once something hits hard, it’s not terribly likely that I can go get what I need for myself.”

To that end, Adrienne has put together a list of the top 5 over-the-counter drugs to help manage the symptoms of Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS.
