No: However, there are medications that can produce fairly good benefit. People with cfs should also have a sleep study to eliminate sleep issues as a cause.

No cure, only treat: After detailed questions, exam & tests have ruled out underlying cause for chronic fatigue, the goal becomes to control symptoms and improve day-to-day functioning. Good nutrition, careful endurance exercise, aggressively managing stress & any other illnesses, support, planning, setting realistic expectations, and judicious use of medications are all part of living well with cfs.
