Re: Cannabis

I can order oils in the pharmacy or even make them myself but the pharmacy can only produce oils with strains here available in Germany. And Red No. 1 is currently not imported and as far as I know there are no plans for it to come to Germany. When I vape during the day, I tend to need to less opioi...

Re: Cannabis

Wow, so I can't believe: I slept again & again. Can't remember the last time when I slept so much in just a few days. It seems like it was even too much since I woke up with a really depressed mood, so bad that I used Cannabis in the late morning to improve my mood. Normally I don't use Cannabis...

Re: Tramadol ER

Good luck with the Tramadol. Just keep in mind that Tramadol can be quite stimulating and cause insomnia as a side effect itself. When it comes to severe RLS & insomnia, marijuana seems to be by far the most reliable and best option when opioids are not working. I also like the mood uplifting pr...

Re: Cannabis

Wow, so I am having quite incredible results with Klenk 18/1 (White Widow). Last night I was able to sleep for more than 12 hours. It is the probably the best sleep I've ever had from using Cannabis. Unfortunately nobody knows how consistent the effect will be and it is prone to tolerance. LA Confid...

Re: Cannabis

Do you know what strain is behind Red #1? I am sure Tweed could export it to Germany if they wanted to but seems like availability / production is the issue. Even this year, over 2 year after the laws got changed to allow treatment with medical Cannabis, Germany was almost out of Cannabis from Canad...

Re: Stopping tramadol after 2 months

For me there is not really a point to reduce some of my opioids and take Kratom instead. In the end they technically stimulate the opioid receptors in a very similar way and after 7 years I basically have no more side effects from opioids while with Kratom I have no idea how it could possibly intera...

Re: Stopping tramadol after 2 months

I take Morphine (90 - 120 mg/day), Oxycodone (20 - 30 mg) and Hydromorphone (4 - 8 mg), so approximately 180 mg - 220 mg in Morphine equivalent or about 2.000 mg Tramadol / Codeine. There is no way I can ever replace this with Kratom. I am way to deep into opioids, managing opioid tolerance for quit...

Re: Attempting to get off Ropinirole - again

A Movement Disorder Clinic!!! That's perfect. This is the absolutely right place to go. They should know about opioids for RLS. What was the reasoning of Dr E who suggested to change from Lyrica to Gabapentin? Lyrica is the more potent substance and with 200 mg there is still quite some potential to...

Re: Stopping tramadol after 2 months

Tramadol is chemically related to an antidepressant called Trevilor (Venlafaxine). That's why it can have such a wide range of side effects because it also works in some way as antidepressant (serotonine & noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor). That's also the reason why Tramadol can cause augmentat...

Re: Cannabis

Okay, so back from the Dr. I managed to get Pedanios 22/1 (should be Ghost Train Haze, but there is no 100% guarantee), Red No. 4 (should be Crimea Blue, but no guarantee) and Klenk 18/1 (should be Widow, but again no guarantee). Turns out when they send different batches of Pedanios 22/1 into a lab...

Re: Stopping tramadol after 2 months

Wow ... when your sleep is so messed atm ... I wouldn't even think about reducing or stopping Tramadol. Opioids are just the best medication for RLS. When you are under no pressure to reduce or discontinue Tramadol, I would just continue taking it. Oh and I know that so well ... only being able to s...

Re: Stopping tramadol after 2 months

I would simply go by feel and reduce as fast as you tolerate the reduction. Opioid receptors seem to be able to reset a bit faster than other receptors. When I discovered Carbamazepine, which was highly effective for my RLS symptoms at the time, I was able to stop Hydromorphone within 2 weeks. So as...

Re: Pharma Sticky

I'm taking Morphine for about 5 years now. It is the most effective opioid for me and especially in the first months Morphine had additional hypnotic properties Oxycodone and Hydromorphone did not have. Also I remember one case report where a patient was treated with intrathecal Morphine (Morphine i...

Re: Attempting to get off Ropinirole - again

Qyx - I've had a look on line and everything I find states that Codeine max daily should be 240mg. I had that number from prescribing information for doctors for a Codeine XR preparation. I tried to find it again but was unable to. In medical practice, every person has its own limit when the horrib...
