Re: Whacha readin?

I watched it for a bit, but found other shows I like much better. Law and Order, SVU is good. I love Hawaii 5-0 and Madame Secretary, if that's still on. Can't think offhand now but will try to add later. Other ones that you like?

Five Years on Kratom

I'm coming up to my fifth year using only kratom to control my RLS symptoms, and thought some members of this board might find my experience useful. First--and maybe most importantly--I never took a DA. Fairly soon after my RLS became a daily issue, I discovered kratom, and never looked back. I'm wo...

War on Pain Pills

Reason Magazine has an excellent article about the way current medical practice is taking away a patient's ability to control pain.

Re: Magnesium and CoQ10

Re: CoQ10, and magnesium. These are two of the four supplements that Dr. Sinatra (writes books) says keep the cells in your heart healthy and so prevent attacks. I've taken CoQ10 and magnesium for years, and recently added the other two, L-Carnitine and D-ribose. I don't know if they work, but I've ...

Re: More negative news on opioids

Yes. And, if you can, please donate money to the American Kratom Association. Here is an example of things they are doing:

Re: Opioid Interview on TV

Great job, Steve. Thanks for putting yourself out like that. I'm sure it wasn't easy. But then, nothing about this lousy disease is easy anyway.

Re: Sleeping Arrangements

Sounds like kratom might help you both, as it is very good for restless legs, but also for PTSD.

Propanolol?

My daughter was given propanolol for her RLS, which has just become more severe. She is also taking vyvanse and Wellbutrin for adhd/depression. I've searched these boards and can't find much on propanolol which she said isn't helping much. Plus we can't figure out why the RLS has suddenly gotten wor...

Re: Trying out Kratom

I am happy to see kratom work for so many people. As one of you mentioned, the FDA is making threatening noises again about making kratom a schedule 1 drug. That would be a disaster for us. I know that pot is still a schedule 1 drug but here's the difference: pot is fairly easy to grow in this count...

Ann, I'm not sure how to post this article here. It's about a possible link between RLS and ADHD. https://www.healthcentral.com/article/i ... g-syndrome

Re: Discussion board newbie's story with meds

Since you're in Canada, where Kratom is legal, you might try it. There are a number of good threads on this site; just search for "kratom" in the search box. It's been great for me. I've used nothing else for almost five years. I did try Gabapentin. I got the side effects from it, but no R...

Re: Kratom effectiveness isssue

I did some research on kratom, and read that it is not water soluable, but does dissolve in acid. That's why I put it in orange juice: it dissolves in about twenty minutes. I make up doses of kratom in those little plastic jello cups and keep a tray in the refrigerator, so some is ready if I need it...

Re: Kratom effectiveness isssue

It sounds like you're doing fine. You know, the other thing to keep in mind is that there is no quality control with kratom. One dose may have more of the active ingredients than another. I've just decided to trust my body, and if I don't feel better twenty minutes after taking a dose, I take anothe...
