Re: Uh-oh... methadone hassles?

So sorry you are having to go through this, with finding a new doctor. I agree with everyone who wrote. I am a methadone patient. I also take gabapentin and kratom, that way my methadone dose stays low. I occasionally take a DA, no more than once a week only because I would have issues with augmenta...

Re: Exercise

I usually read. I really don't want to watch TV. I have cut back on watching TV. I am sort of tired of it.
I have settled I to riding twice at night. About 10 miles.

Exercise

For several nights I have been riding my recumbent bike at night. I have done it in the past, but it was only once during the night. Now it has turned out to be 2 or 3 times during the night. Mainly because I don't have anything (meds) extra I can take for the spasms. Last night it totalled 16 miles...

Re: Recent restrictions on length of opioid prescriptions

Oh wow. We get our meds 60 miles from our house. It will be a hardship to go weekly if Safeway adopts the policy. I get some things at Wal-Mart, but not my methadone.

Re: Kratom physiology

I mix mine with pineapple juice. I mix it ahead, otherwise it doesn't mix well. When you mix it awhile before drinking, it mixes totally. I like the little 6 oz cans.

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

My spasms have been worse, just like I thought would happen. I am getting 2 to 3 hours inbetween them before they wake me up.
I have been riding my incumbent bike twice a night after spasms wake me up. Getting in 8 plus miles total.
Looking forward to my appointment on the 23rd.

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

The kratom has been working, but now I have to stop it for 2 or 3 weeks. Got labs done because of increasing thyroid med. Thyroid is fine now, but kidneys are now worse. Doctor wants me to stop kratom and then recheck labs to see if that caused the problem. Before kidneys were only had mild issues, ...

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...
