SARALEGUI, A.; PALACIO, P.  and  ROYO, P.. Use of methylphenidate in palliative patients with asthenia: a review. Anales Sis San Navarra [online]. 2013, vol.36, n.2, pp.287-293. ISSN 1137-6627.

Asthenia (or fatigue) is one of the most common symptoms in palliative patients. Methylphenidate is currently being assessed for treating this condition. A review of related literature published to date was performed, revealing methylphenidate to be a safe drug which could decrease fatigue in palliative patients with a tolerable side-effects profile.

Keywords : Methylphenidate; Asthenia; Cancer related fatigue; Palliative care; Cancer.
