Re: Propofol

With the way Propofol works, I would agree that it is unlikely that it will cause / trigger RLS symptoms. Have there been any other drugs involved in the procedure? The pronounced symptoms could have been a random spike in symptoms or simply happened because you did not move because you were sedated...

I went away after maybe 2 years on classic opioids like Morphine & Oxycodone but I still have big big trouble sleeping at night.

Methadone is also more problematic than classic opioids.

Re: Alerting help (Tramadol)

For example additional Carbamazepine helped me sleep for 4 years. So far this have been the best years with my disorder and since it stopped working, I can't do much. Time to try it again? or is it too soon? I tried. It is not really helpful anymore. The Oxcarbamazepin I take as a replacement is si...

Re: Cannabis

Yes, Steve is right. Very important to start slow and go slow and especially with edibles, it can take up to 4 hours for the full effect to manifest itself. When I started with Cannabis, 2,5 mg of THC consumed orally was already enough to make me super stoned for more than 12 hours. If you are an in...

Re: Alerting help (Tramadol)

Tramadol can be one of the most stimulating / alerting properties because it also has additional serotonergic effects. Tramadol is not a classic, pure opioid and it is chemically related to a very stimulating antidepressant (Venlafaxine). In fact there are even people who get addicted to Tramadol be...

Re: Cannabis

New update: #1 The Pedanios 20 / 1 seems to work best for sleeping purposes while the Bedrocan offers better pain relief. However when I skip my cannabis meds for a day because I feel like I don't need them, the next time I use cannabis it often feels like that cannabis is worsening my symptoms in t...

Re: Oxycodone HCL--how much works for you?

I take 30 mg Oxycodone per day ... however I also take around 90 to 120 mg Morphine and sometimes 4 mg Hydromorphone. I do have to combine different opioids because when I only take one, it is not enough, even when I raise a lot. Also opioids alone were never enough for me. I have to take additional...

Re: Methadone adjustment; changing to oxycodone

I thought that the dosage used for pain was more than RLS dosages usually? I take almost 200 mg Morphine (or 100 mg Oxycodone) daily. The individual doses depends on the individual needs of the patient. But is it true that most RLS patients need lower opioid doses than the average chronic pain pati...

Re: Methadone adjustment; changing to oxycodone

I have been working with primary care doc and he seemed freaked by the amount of oxycodone that was "equivalent" to 6mg. of methadone when I suggested the change, and it made me nervous. (But then the methadone has kind of turned me into a nut case.) Nervous as well because I see the oxyc...

Re: Dopamine question - even after all these years.

There is also this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monoamine_oxidase This enzyme deals with dopamine "not longer needed". If you read those two articles I linked it should answer all your question. I thought about an easier way to answer you questions but since you asked so many and don't se...

Re: Dopamine question - even after all these years.

"Unused" dopamine goes back into the cells it was released from.

Re: Excellent article on opioids

THC helps me a lot, but only in combination with opioids. I think without the opioids it would be almost useless in my case ... but opioids alone also don't help enough that I would want to live without the THC.

Good luck with the kratom. It is quite likely it will help you.

Re: If you have been denied opioid treatment

I hope this suit has success but while I know not much about the regulations in the U.S. I feel like there is the argument that it is up to individual doctors to decide which is the right treatment. I did not read the details but I feel like this is an easy defence against the suit, especially with ...

Re: Cannabis

Oh, and I just found this: Avoid using sativa/indica terminology: There is perhaps no debate in the world of cannabis more contentious than that of species. The genus Cannabis sativa L. is the only official species, but the cannabis industry is using other terms as indica and hybrid to promote their...
