Cancer-related fatigue (CRF) is one of the most prevalent, debilitating symptoms for patients with cancer. It is also a multifactorial problem for which there is no one solution. Emily A. Lemke, DNP, AGPCNP-BC, AOCNP®, of the Medical College of Wisconsin, summarizes data on one potential option: 2,000 mg of American ginseng daily. She reviews the safety and efficacy, where to source it, and tools to measure fatigue in patients.
