Re: Cannabis

Okay, some interesting news. Yesterday I had the appointment. We will start with a CBD only solution to evaluate my response and see what CBD does and doesn't do for me, what symptoms improve and which doesnt or if there is any affect at all before we later add THC as an extract where you have THC t...

Cannabis

So today I got a call from my doctor. She wants me to go see a specialist who has experience with prescribing Cannabis. I had to laugh so hard. Like jeez. I never mentioned it to her. It was completely her own idea and the way she sounded, she honestly seems to believe Cannabis could make a differen...

Re: My pharma diary

Most of the time it is not one single thing that improves a medical problem. It is rather a combination of various factors.

Re: Increasing Gabapentin dosage

Up to 1200 mg but it's been working well for over a month. Timing seems to be important. 600 mg at 5pm then another 600 mg at 9:30. I sleep through the night. Hopefully we're settled in for a while. Should you become tolerant, you can increase the dose even higher. In Germany a dosage up to 4.800 m...

Re: The next pharma drug crisis in the US may be starting

The opioid addicts in the U.S. need access to proper treatment, especially opioid replacement therapy with Methadone & Buprenorphine. Methadone has been used for opioid replacement therapy in the US for many decades. In fact, the common reaction that you get if someone finds out that one of us ...

Re: My pharma diary

Hey beth, in short: I think the topics you mentioned are all very important but overlooked in mainstream medicine simply because there is no big financial benefit for the medical industry in general. The industry wants to sell expensive insurance, expensive drugs and doctors want to bill you for com...

Re: The next pharma drug crisis in the US may be starting

Qyx, the issue with gabapentin isn't that it is being abused by itself. The idiots who are making things difficult for the rest of us are using it to add to the high that they are getting from other drugs and this appears to even include alcohol. The indications are that the high (or drunk) is even...

Re: The next pharma drug crisis in the US may be starting

My eyes hurt tremendously, so I won't stay to write about it now. Click on this to find the article about gabapentin - now a scheduled drug in Kentucky and routinely being abused... The abuse potential for Gabapentin is rather low. Lyrica is the same type of class, way more potent and is abused hea...

Re: methadone not working

Thanks QyX. I'm on 9 mg of hydromorphone - 10 or 11 some nights - plus small doses of Lyrica, zopiclone and trazodone. Your comments made me wonder if I would have an easier time stopping if I first switched to smaller doses of two opioids, but probably it wouldn't make a difference. Switch to Oxyc...

Re: My pharma diary

If I ever make it through this, I would maybe write a book about it. There is a lot I learned and would be worth passing but it kinda doesn't matter unless I make it myself. I read a lot and sometimes I play video games or TV shows but I always feel guilty when I do since the feeling of doing nothin...

Re: methadone not working

I take a combination of three opioids (Hydromorphone, Oxycodone and Morphine) instead of a higher dose from one single opioid. In my case this helps to keep the tolerance under control and in that combination opioids are still effective after 6 years of taking them. How much of each do you take? Do...

Re: methadone not working

The way Methadone is metabolised in the body can be very different depending on eachs person genetics. There is a group of people who seem to be rapid metabolizers of Methadone. Maybe he is part of that group and from what I learned about opioid replacement therapy in Heroin / opioid addicts there a...

Re: Nicotine

Here is a little update: at least when consumed daily, nicotine doesn't seem beneficial. However there are two key points to make. 1) the dose of nicotine in my vaping liquid is very low and 2) right now I am suffering from a major depression which is maybe impacting my sleep way more then RLS. At t...
