Re: Methadone was working, now it's not

I used to take my methadone in the evening, total 10 mg. I got the alerting. I added gabapentin. That worked for awhile. Now I take the methadone 2.5 mg every 6 hours, 2 pm, 8 pm, 2 am, 8 am. Then I stopped the 8 am and just take the whole tablet at 2 am. I don't set an alarm or anything, it is when...

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

I have been taking mirapex about once a week. I don't seem to need anymore than that. It has been wonderful to sleep again without spasms.

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

This is very unusual. I took it Sunday night and have not had any spasms since then. It has been a wonderful week.

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

Even on good nights I am up every few hours riding my bike.
I don't want to take it on a schedule. I took it Sunday night and haven't taken it since. I want to take it on bad nights only. It causes too much weight gain , plus augmentation, but thanks for the suggestion.

I used it, but could not tolerate side effects.

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

Last night I cut it in half and it worked. The night started out bad. After taking the half tab, the rest of the night I was able to sleep. Tonight I am sleeping fine, so again, carry over of med from last night. So maybe I will take it every third or forth night may work. Since last night started o...

Re: restiffic?

I took them off after 2 hours. Feet hurt. I don't think they will do anything. Glad I did not pay for them.

Re: restiffic?

My doctor gave me a free set. Going to wear them tonight. They seem difficult to put on. They seem ridiculous to me.

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

Well, when I took it everyday 2 years ago I was a mess in one month, could only sleep 2 hours. I didn't take it last night. I must have had enough in my system, because I had no RLS or spasms. Slept great. My thought was only take it once a week. Like you said Ann, afraid to take it more often. I wi...

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

I took .125 mg I think. I have several strengths. I had broken the tab in half.
Plus I have to remember I can't take it every day, or it will reduce me to 2 hours a night, like it did before.

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

Ok, thank you. Last night I knew my spasms would be bad, from being in the car all day. They started as soon as I decided to go to bed. Upon trying to decide on my course of action, I decided to take some mirapex. I slept 8 hours. The best night I have had in a long time. I have decided to restart i...

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

I saw Pulmonary doctor today who handles my Bipap. He has also tried to manage my RLS and leg spasms. No changes with him except he wanted me to try the Restiffic foot wraps. They were free to me so I said ok. My first impression is they seem ridiculous. Difficult for me to put on and very uncomfort...
