Treating Lyme depression and fatigue

It might be helpful for Lyme patients who are experiencing fatigue and/or depression to know about the  CoQ10 deficiency that  occurs in patients with these two conditions.

multiviamin/mineral foundation program with 1 gram of fish oil 
coQ10: 300 - 360 mg
L-carnitine: 2,000 - 3,000 mg
D-ribose: 15 grams 
magnesium: 400-800 mg
