Treatment of fatigue in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis/motor neuron disease. BACKGROUND: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as motor neuron disease (MND), is terminal, progressive neurological condition for which there are no curative treatments. Among people with ALS/MND, fatigue is a common and debilitating symptom, which is characterised by reversible motor weakness and whole-body tiredness that is only partially relieved by rest. The effectiveness of pharmacological or non (...) -pharmacological treatments for fatigue in ALS/MND is not yet established. OBJECTIVES: To assess the effects of pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions for fatigue in ALS/MND. SEARCH METHODS: We searched the following databases on 5 September 2017: Cochrane Neuromuscular Specialised Register, CENTRAL, MEDLINE, Embase, PsycINFO, CINAHL Plus, and ERIC. We also searched two clinical trials registries. SELECTION CRITERIA: We selected randomised and quasi-randomised controlled trials of any
