Due to the complexity of chronic fatigue syndrome, treatment and management can be difficult.

First and foremost, there are no prescription drugs available to treat chronic fatigue syndrome. Because symptoms may vary over time, the treatment process becomes complicated. As with many disorders, treatment requires patience and diligence. Doctors must continually monitor patients and adapt treatment strategies accordingly.

If a patient believes he or she has chronic fatigue syndrome, he or she ought to seek the medical advice of a doctor. The first step to treatment is recommending a chronic fatigue syndrome diet. Although there is no medical
cure for chronic fatigue syndrome, medication and behavior therapy are used to treat chronic fatigue syndrome.

Drugs such as tricyclic antidepressants generally help to reduce lethargy. Other drugs such as nortriptyline and desipramine are used in chronic fatigue syndrome treatment. Anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin or ibuprofen reduce muscle soreness.

Finally, a physical exercise program will help to improve energy level and decrease muscle weakness.

Chronic fatigue treatment should be based on a combination of therapies such as rehabilitation, exercise treatment, and activity management.
