Behavioral Insomnia Therapy for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

The purpose of this study is to determine how best to manage the sleep problems of people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). This study is also being conducted to determine how improvements in sleep affect other CFS symptoms, including fatigue, pain, and mood.

During the study, you will receive medical care for CFS. You may also learn new strategies to improve sleep. You will not be prescribed any experimental drugs.

Eligibility
Individuals may be eligible to participate in this study if they are between the ages of 21 and 65, have CFS, and have had difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep for more than one month.

Individuals may be ineligible to participate if they have another serious medical illness, mental health condition, or sleep disorder (such as sleep apnea or restless legs).

Requirements
The study lasts about four months and involves about 13 visits to Duke University Medical Center. One of the required visits is an overnight stay in the Duke Sleep Lab. The remaining visits are office visits, which are scheduled during normal business hours (8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.).

Compensation Compensation is $260 for participants who successfully complete all study procedures.
