"
01/01/2008 - "Duloxetine-treated patients improved significantly more than placebo-treated patients on the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire pain score, BPI least pain score and average interference score, Clinical Global Impressions of Severity scale, area under the curve of pain relief, Multidimensional Fatigue Inventory mental fatigue dimension, Beck Depression Inventory-II total score, and 36-item Short Form Health Survey mental component summary and mental health score. "
01/01/2014 - "A single infusion of FCM improved fatigue, mental quality-of-life, cognitive function and erythropoiesis in iron-deficient women with normal or borderline hemoglobin. "
04/01/2002 - "Effects of creatine on mental fatigue and cerebral hemoglobin oxygenation."
07/24/2014 - "In oncologic patients the rise of hemoglobin and ferritin levels was of high statistic significance (p < 0.001) and transferrin saturation also rose significantly (p = 0.02) Fatigue, mental capacities as well as dyspnea improved among CKD-and CIBD-groups. "
|4.||Methylphenidate (Ritalin)FDA LinkGeneric
01/01/2014 - "Methylphenidate significantly decreased mental fatigue, as evaluated by the Mental Fatigue Scale (p < 0.001), and the effects on mental fatigue were dose-dependent. "
01/01/2015 - "Methylphenidate was generally well-tolerated and it improved long-lasting mental fatigue and processing speed after traumatic brain injury."
01/01/2014 - "The aim of this study was to investigate dosage, safety and effects of methylphenidate on mental fatigue and pain. "
01/01/2015 - "Methylphenidate reduces mental fatigue and improves processing speed in persons suffered a traumatic brain injury."
01/01/2014 - "Methylphenidate decreased mental fatigue for subjects suffering a traumatic brain injury, the treatment is considered to be safe and is recommended, starting with a low dose."
|5.||Carnitine (L-Carnitine)FDA LinkGeneric
12/01/2007 - "This study evaluated the efficacy of L-carnitine on physical and mental fatigue and on cognitive functions of centenarians. "

03/01/2006 - "L-carnitine reduces severity of physical and mental fatigue and improves daily activities in the elderly."
01/01/2003 - "Wessely and Powell scores decreased significantly by 40% (physical fatigue) and 45% (mental fatigue) in subjects taking levocarnitine, compared with 11% and 8%, respectively, in the placebo group (p < 0.001 vs placebo for both parameters). "
03/01/2008 - "Improved cognitive performance and mental fatigue following a multi-vitamin and mineral supplement with added guaraná (Paullinia cupana)."
08/01/2015 - "The administration of a vitamin and mineral complex with guaraná (MVM + G) has been shown to attenuate mental fatigue and improve performance during cognitively demanding tasks. "
03/01/2008 - "This research supports previous findings demonstrating guaraná's cognition enhancing properties and provides evidence that its addition to a multi-vitamin-mineral supplement can improve cognitive performance and reduce the mental fatigue associated with sustained mental effort."
|7.||Transferrin (beta 2 Transferrin)IBA
12/01/2013 - "In the selective-time -acupuncture group, the total score of fatigue, the s core of physical fatigue and the score of mental fatigue after treatment were reduced obviously as compared with those hefore treatment (all P<0. "
