Re: methadone long-term

I think I’d rather be subjected to waterboarding or worse than have to go through that. I’m sorry you’re having to go through this. I’ve switched from methadone, to suboxone, to fentanyl, and one other, then back to methadone, but without extended breaks. The last week to 10 days without methadone i...

Re: methadone long-term

What’s the longest you have gone without a med? Recently I went about 7 days, unintentionally. It was awful.
Somehow, I went around 2mos about 5yrs ago. I experienced lessened symptoms but I was begging for something more than the Horizant I was given after seeing Dr. Early.

methadone long-term

I’ve been taking an opioid of some sort for over 5yrs. I currently take methadone 7.5mg nightly, but for some time I’ve been experiencing sx 24/7, the kind that come on almost immediately on laying down. I am able to get some rest, but every hour during my usual sleep time I am in pain from the usua...

Re: Dipyridamole

Thank you Holland and Legs for your willingness to push the envelope with this hopeful new approach. I am one who wrestles with accepting the limitations this damned condition has given me. But, I gain hope from articles in thr Nightwalker and hoped to find more about dipyridamole and wasn’t disappo...

Re: Medical Marijuana

Thanks Steve, sounds like there is an adjustment phase. So you are still taking methadone, also? Has the MM helped with the usual disconfort associated with urges to move?

Thanks

Re: Medical Marijuana

Holland, my dosing may not be the greatest of guides. My methadone dose is the smallest dose available, 5mg (unless I break them in half). I tried going up just a half of a pill to 7.5mg, but had to drop back due to side effects (feeling a bit loopy) and had to change the time of day in order to co...

Re: Medical Marijuana

Hi, I am considering a move west, and would like to settle near Carson City, NV. Can anyone share their resulting experience with the MM program in Nevada? The wording isn't as inclusive as CA. It appears that the state "Division" would have the right to decide if RLS is included. Can anyo...

Re: Gabapenton

Other than the slight sedation for several months when first starting gabapentin my experience was great. Other than a bayer asperin there are few meds that I have not experienced neg side-effects. Gabapentin was one that I took for a long time and was a godsend when dealing with a neck injury and a...

Re: Reducing opioid meds - seccation of symptoms?

Hi Rick, I think my doc and others believe it's best not to utilize any meds (cold turkey) when withdrawing from a dopamine agonist. Reasoning has something to do with how your body recognizes pain and setting a proper baseline. As far as using clonazepam in treatment of RLS my Dr. has mentioned tha...

Re: Kratom- avoiding addiction/intelligent use/other's experiences

It seems like it would be difficult to say an entire race is more or less prone to addictive behaviors, but maybe there's something to it.

Re: Kratom- avoiding addiction/intelligent use/other's experiences

Wondering how "racial" groups have anything to do with genetics, Steve (rustsmith). Maybe I'm misunderstanding.

Re: Newly Approved Device - available in US

KDecker1612, I have been using a massager similar to what you described. It is made by Brookstone and is a heated neck and shoulder massager that is cordless and can easily be used on most other areas, lower back, legs, etc. It is a little pricey, but worth every penny. I have fallen asleep with it ...
