    Wasn’t KPAX a planet Kevin Spaceys character said he came from. Can’t remember what film. Seems a bizarre choice for a name for an alleged medication

    Here's the thread on KPAX for CFS. Null result.
    If at first you don't succeed (at getting some 'science' to prop up your marketing campaign) try again.

    Not surprisingly, the film, which was released in 2001, was called... "K-PAX." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K-PAX_(film) :)
