Re: Magnesium and CoQ10

I am totally frustrated. Even though I have divided up my doses of the methadone, it is not letting me sleep. I am getting less and less sleep. In other words, I was getting 9 and 10 hours, with breaks in that time. Four hours at a time, or two. Now, I have been getting 7 in a row, or less, and that...

Re: Changing my diet may have solved my RLS

I believe that changing my diet has helped. No sugar, no artificial anything, no wheat flour, grass fed meats and butter, no dairy, no antibiotics in meat, etc. Lots of veggies.

Re: Magnesium and CoQ10

Spasms hit me at 1 am, then finally after they went away, I could not go back to sleep. Slept again this morning though. I just hate being up at night. I increased gabapentin to two at night, then. See what happens tonight. I was really hoping it would take care of the insomnia and help with spasms....

Re: Ice Cream

I find that it is the expensive chocolate that causes me problems, where I can get away with cheap chocolate candys, etc. It is how much cocoa or real chocolate is in an item, or cake, etc.

Re: Magnesium and CoQ10

I decided to add back gabapentin. Starting 300 mg twice a day. I was hoping it would help with the insomnia. So far it is helping. Also decided to space out the methadone more. Now taking 2.5 mg every 6 hours.
