Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Home > Treatment for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Unfortunately, there is no cure for chronic fatigue syndrome. Treatment, therefore, is focused on relieving symptoms and improving a person's sense of well-being. Options include:
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Medication
  • Alternative therapies.
In many cases, a combination approach will be employed. Regular follow-up appointments are an important part of treatment for chronic fatigue, because the plan may need modifying as a person's condition changes.
