    I did ozone water which left
    I did ozone water which left me energized. I had bought an ozonator from ebay (cost about 60 bucks) and made water with it. Also, I did aloe vera juice and few days took nap during the day. But overall I was working, so I didnt quite understand the fatigue. Are you eating healthy?

    I've read that some docs
    are prescribing ADHD meds for cancer-related fatigue. Haven't tried it myself, but i would imagine it would give one a lift. Might be worth talking to your doctor about it. I also found it helpful to do a little bit of walking each day, if at all possible. Even a short walk helped give me more energy. Good luck, fatigue was one of the worst side effects for me.

    Sleep
    After my chemo I am very tired for about 5 days then it gets better and right when I am feeling normal its time for chemo. The best way I handle it is to know for that chemo week I sleep as needed and keep in mind it won't last forever.

    Its funny, when people have colds they take full advantage of sleeping as much as possible to recoup but we cancer fighters think we have to always try to not act sick. Lord knows with the fight we are fighting we have every right to sleep if needed.

    Sleep, my friend. Tomorrow is another day.

    Big hug!

    Exercise
    The best advice for fatigue my doctor gave me was to exercise and to keep an active daily routine. It seemed to work since the fatigue was not that bad. I will say I did feel much better on the days that I did not work because half my work day is a desk job and I was not as active at work as I was on the weekends. Keep in mind everone is different!
