Re: Weight Loss

I've lost 20 pounds in the last month. The same 20 that I have lost before. I decided to do Keto this time. It's similar to what I have done in the past, just fewer carbs. I will go back to my other plan once I get this weight off. It is a combination of keto and paleo. Keto is just like Atkins. Jus...

Re: New Kratom User - when to take

Hi, I haven't used kratom before, but since I've been cut off my pain meds and my GP refuses to prescribe anything except ropinerole, I'm trying it. If you have powder, how much should you measure? I started out with 1/2 teaspoon. I now take 2 teaspoons. It seems to last about 4 hours. It works bes...

Re: Weaning off medications

I added back Kratom. That took care of it.

Re: Weaning off medications

I was wrong. It just took a few nights for the level of gabapentin to go down. It was nice sleeping for awhile. I need off this gabapentin. I tried to get off methadone and decided this would be better.

Re: Weaning off medications

No spasms last night, Got 7.5 hrs. That spasm I had the other night might not have anything to do with the gabapentin.

Weird thing, I never got anymore spasms, so I was able to get 4 more hours of sleep, thank goodness.

Re: Weaning off medications

I'm weaning off gabapentin. Like most meds, when you wean off of them, it's not too comfortable. I've had 4 hrs of sleep tonight so far. I have been getting 8, which has been great. I'm usually awake every 2 hrs, so its not like sleeping all the way through, but I've been feeling pretty good. It was...

Re: advice please

The serum ferritin normal range by the labs range is not normal for us. The other people here can tell you what our normal is, I can't remember.
Good luck

Re: Rotating Meds

Yes, Betty I hope it works out too. The main reason I have a months worth of extra is because I weaned down on the methadone while taking other stuff, gabapentin and mirapex. Plus similar to Steve, she gives me 3 hard copies of a 3 months supply. During those 3 months I took less. At the next appt. ...

Re: Rotating Meds

I had my Doctor write for a few extra pills, a larger amount for one month. Then I always have a stash. Also when I am gone without my husband, he can always pick them up and mail them to me. ( When I house sit for my Daughter)

Re: Rotating Meds

I'm always trying to figure out the best times for my meds.
I recently increased my Methadone so I could wean off Gabapentin. I'm sleepy during the day and tonight I'm wide awake after an adjustment today. I needed more coverage at night, but this didn't work.
Back to square one.
Good luck to you.
