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: CELL PHONES - ENGINEER - WARRANTY !!

I understand your frustration. We have been having phones difficulties too. I won't go into it, but this has driven me crazy.

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.

Re: Medication Side Effect Statistics

When we go to the pharmacy, they don't just hand over the meds. We have to go to a side window and wait for a pharmacist. You would think that this is when they would tell me about the medication, but no, they just say do you gave any questions. We have to go through every time, even when we have be...

Re: Diet and Cholesterol

Thank you for responding. That is what I thought too. I drink my water every day. I have enough doctors to go to as it is, cardiology, pulmonary, RLS, as well as PCP every 3 months. The only other issue is the swelling if my legs, in the last year, going on 2. I already do low salt.

Re: Diet and Cholesterol

Kidney ultra sound came back normal. I am going to talk to my primary next week to see if I can cancel kidney doctor. I just don't think I need it right now. It is too much to be going to all of these doctors. I looked back on labs to 1992. Just went up and down. I have been 1.3 before, I'm sure she...

Re: Diet and Cholesterol

I looked back, and it has gone up and down.
1992 it was 1.2 range was .5 to 1.5
1997. it was 0.9
2002. it was 1.1 range 0.6 to 1.1
2006 it was 2.0 range 0.5 to 1.4
2012 it was 1.12 range 0.5 to 0.99
2015 it was 1.22 range 0.57 to 1.0
Sometimes I think doctor's just want to be cautious.
