This disease does not alter the effects of medications

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using the Ask a Doctor service.

Systemic exertion intolerance is characterized by profound fatigue, sleep abnormalities, pain and other symptoms that are made worse by exertion. Various diagnostic tools like Mood and Feelings Questionnaire can be used for its diagnosis. Its pathophysiology remains poorly understood. The problem could involve attenuated hypothalamus–pituitary–adrenal axis as well as altered autonomic cardiovascular control. An unrefreshing sleep plays a crucial role.

This disease does not alter the effects of medications and you need not worry about the same.
