Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

Thank you for all of the information. It will be awhile before I try the marijuana products. The kratom is helping for now. I only have a couple more doses of kratom left. After that I will just have to indur until I can purchase what I want to try or get more kratom. Money was tight before, but sin...

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

I took the kratom last night and tonight. I am about to go to sleep, but thought I would check in here first. I had spasms 2 hours after going to sleep last night, and took second dose of kratom. Worked the rest of the night and slept most of the morning. Didn't take any mirapex last night, today or...

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

It is getting worse. My RLS has been fairly controlled. Today the RLS really kicked in. I broke down and took a half of a mirapex. A very small dose a .125 mg tab, one half. I could feel the calmness come over my body. Tonight RLS is active again. Didn't have any spasms today or tonight so far. Had ...

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

I can't take it at all. The last time I tried, it didn't help much and gave me insomnia. Redused sleep to 2 hours at night. It was not the only thing I was taking at the time.
Wish it did work. It worked for me for years.

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

Well, I know that the methadone isn't enough, but then the gabapentin isn't enough either. There is probably a tolerance. It feels like the body wants more, but I like said there is no way I will increase either one. It also seems to be connected to my activity level. I believe I have said this befo...

Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

I take methadone. It has been since 2010, I think. I only went off one time for a reset. Now, 2.5 mg every 6 hours. Taking it around the clock to handle the insomnia. Then I added gabapentin several months ago, reluctantly. I have taken it before. I have been taking 600 mg once in the afternoon and ...

Re: Magnesium and CoQ10

I should tell you Tawny, that both of my hips were replaced. I was a side sleeper before that. When my hips started going, due to osteoarthritis, I had to sleep on my back. Never liked it. After the replacements, it was just never the same. At least now, I can sleep 5 hours before changing sides.

Re: Magnesium and CoQ10

Since I have added the CQ 10, magnesium and gabapentin, I am better. It is probably the gabapentin though. I added it much later. I have also found a way to lay on my sides. I sleep better on my side. Before my hips would hurt just after an hour or two. Now I am putting a pillow behind my back. That...

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

Please don't assume that your wife dislikes you. I learned a long time ago to never assume anyone else's feelings. Talk to her. Tell her how you feel.
