Having been diagnosed with CFS/Fibro just over a couple of months I did a bit of research and have chatted to others about recommendations ... One thing that came up was melatonin - Circadan on prescription. However, my GP informs me that this is red-listed in my area and therefore unavailable to me.
Has anyone else found this to be the case ? Should I fight for this ? If so,how? Does anyone take this and find it helpful ? What alternatives can anyone suggest ?
I do feel that my inability to get stage 4 sleep is a major factor in my symptoms and believe that my ability to cope with life / pains would be improved with quality sleep ( I can get to sleep and stay asleep for -10 hours but still feel as tired as when I went to bed !)
Thanks for any advice
