Ivabradine helps me very noticeably - it restores much of my cognitive function. I think it helps to get the blood circulating to my brain better. I take 5mg in the morning and 5mg at night.
It's the one thingt has made the most difference in my 10 years of living with ME.
I've been taking a small dose of ivabradine (2.5 mg bid) for the last couple of years for postural tachycardia. I found it to be better for that purpose than even the B-selective beta-blockers, which of course dropped my BP along with my HR, worsening overall orthostatic intolerance; as an I[f] channel blocker, ivabradine's much more of a `pure' heart-rate lowering agent.
Other than helping to control the postural tachycardia, though, it has absolutely no effect on any of my core ME symptoms.
