Supplements for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia

Various chapters in Living Well With Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia discuss vitamins, minerals, herbs, enzymes, glandulars, and combination supplements recommended by various practitioners, experts, and research. Ultimately, any decision you make to take supplements should be determined as part of your wellness plan, in conjunction with a knowledgeable practitioner. Your practitioner can help you choose the best supplements for you and your specific condition and symptoms, as well as help you determine a safe and effective dosage.

These supplements are available at health food, vitamin and nutritional stores and healthy supermarkets. Various online vitamin and supplement vendors also sell these supplements. If you are interested in ordering online, to be sure that you (1) work with a reputable, top-quality vendor that offers good prices, and (2), you get a good quality supplement, I’ve linked to Iherb.com, the best online herb/vitamin/supplement store, in my opinion. I have been buying from Iherb for years, and have found them to offer great prices, fast delivery, and excellent customer service. I have also linked to particular brands and formulations that I personally have used, and/or have been highly recommended by practitioners I trust.

Recommended for Most Patients

For Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia patients, physician, researcher, CFS/Fibromyalgia expert, and CFS patient himself, Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, has spent years formulating a series of supplements that combine some of the best knowledge about the conditions, nutritional support, and relief for symptoms. As someone who takes these products myself, I can highly recommend them. The research and various rationales for the components of these products, and how they can help in CFS and Fibromyalgia are discussed at length in Living Well With Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.

Daily Energy Enfusion / Super-Multivitamin


Jacob Teitelbaum, MD's "Fatigued to Fantastic!" Daily Energy Infusion is a powdered vitamin formula. When mixed with water, it makes a tasty citrus flavored drink, with vitamins, minerals and supplements that can replace more than 20 different pills a day! It's a comprehensive multivitamin formula for CFS, Fibromyalgia, thyroid, autoimmune, and other chronic disease patients.
Order Daily Energy Enfusion now from Iherb.com

B Complex / Daily Energy Enfusion


In order to preserve optimal flavor, Jacob Teitelbaum, MD's "Fatigued to Fantastic!" Daily Energy Infusion does not include needed B vitamins. The Bs -- which wouldn’t have tasted very good if included in the Energy Enfusion drink -- are instead packaged separately in one capsule that you can take with your daily drink mix without ruining its flavor.

Revitalizing Sleep Formula

Sleep difficulties, frequent waking, and inabiolity to get to restorative Stage 4 sleep are frequent concerns in CFS and Fibromyalgia. As an alternative or complement to prescription sleep drugs, Jacob Teitelbaum, MD's Revitalizing Sleep Formula is an effective option. The supplement features valerian and several other herbs, but doesn't leave you groggy in the morning. (Note: a very small percentage of people find valerian stimulating instead of sleep inducing.) The supplement can also be a daytime help in relaxation.
