Dr. Jay Goldstein's Top 23 Drugs for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS)

Dr. Jay Goldstein's Top 23 Drugs for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS)

Dr. Goldstein believed ME/CFS was a disorder of disturbed central nervous system processing and he developed a unique protocol for treating it.

He also wrote three books in the 1990's and in 2004: "Betrayal of the Brain: The Neurologic Basis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia Syndrome, and Related Disorders" and "The Limbic Hypothesis" and Tuning the Brain".

Erica Verillo describes how he worked
"Typically, when Dr. Goldstein saw new patients, he would test them sequentially with minute quantities of many psychoactive drugs in order to 1) identify the source of the problem, and 2) establish which drugs would be most effective.
This method allowed Dr. Goldstein to assess the patient rapidly, and at minimal cost. Dr. Goldstein halted sequential trials when the patient was “virtually asymptomatic.” Dr. Goldstein claimed that using this protocol most patients were dramatically improved in one or two office visits."
He retired from practice in 2003.
