Gp leaning towards cfs/me. Again recommend antidepressants. How do ads help sleep/energy? I can't see less REM plus their side effects as beneficial.

In brief: Abbreviations?

Antidepressants work by regulating your brain's neurotransmitters back to a normal range.
They also induced brain cell growth, which may take several weeks to work fully. Sleep disturbances and low energy are symptoms of depression--when the depression resolves, the symptoms resolve. If you explain other abbreviations, i may be able to explain more specifically.
