It help because lack of L-Carnitine of PwMEs , and by the vasodilatator action of L-Carnitine

I took 1 capsules, 2 times a day. I started to take it when I was first diagnosed (however, I did take lots of other supplements not just this), I was 30/40 on CFS ability scale. I stopped it after about 6 months, at that point I was 60 on the scale. I stopped it because I did further research and decided to refocus and change things. I am now 70/80 on the scale.

I followed the doctor's ramping-up instructions but it still made me very ill from the very first dose, with horrible gastrointestinal problems that lasted long after I stopped taking it.
