Hi there! No, I have never tried it and doubt I ever will go for it. I'm afraid of the side effects, specially given the fact I shouldn't consume sugar, I am already doing that, so don't want to add more to that.

Hi again and thanks for the welcome!
Anyone can google and get more info, but as I see it, d-ribose helps muscle energy and decreases pain, cramps and stiffness after exercise.
I found info from Jacob Teitelbaum, MD who has done a study on its effects on people with fb.

I take d-ribose. I started taking it a year ago. I wasn't sure it was really doing anything after a while so I stopped taking it. I could really tell then, my muscles felt so weak. I have been back on it for about a month now. I do feel stronger. D-ribose is recommended for heart patients so I don't see how it could be bad for you.

Thanks for your reply Fibrodaze! Can I ask what dose you are taking? I am only taking one teaspoon twice a day and it is helping.
I am going through a period of extreme exhaustion and if I forget to take it I can't get moving. I know I wouldn't be able to get of the couch if I wasn't taking it now.
I have cut back on coffee, so I'm not really ingesting anymore sugar than usual.

Your Welcome. I take one scoop a day which equals 2 teaspoons.

I took it and felt weird and possibly allergic to it, I didn't feel better but probably didn't give it enough chance.

The pills tasted so nasty.
