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...

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.

Re: Orthofix fusing machine

I have not had what you had but, when I ever had surgery there was some inflammation. My RLS is worse them.
Sorry you are having so much difficulty.

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.
