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...

Re: Cannabis

So here is another update and I am afraid it is just getting more complicated and confusing. The potent Indica strain I am using currently (Pedanios 20/1 - 23,8% THC) does not seem to cause any RLS symptoms. At least as far as I can tell. On the 1st day Pedanios knocked me out for a total of 26 hour...

Re: Cannabis

I mentioned elsewhere that I've tried Sativex sublingual spray, which is half-half THC and CBD, and it seemed to help at first but then it started to make my sleep very fractured and even caused WED symptoms sometimes. Actually I started with a water-based tincture bought in a shop; it mostly worke...

Re: suboxone/Belbuca to oxycodone?

If you come from Buprenorphine (Suboxone) you can switch to any other opioid. It is only problematic when it is the other way around.

Re: Excellent article on opioids

Yep, it is a very good article. I just think that the authors of the guidelines could have seen all this coming. They knew exactly how the medical industry works and should have added an additional section explaining that indeed one size doesn't fit everybody. As with many other problems in the U.S....

Re: Anyone ever been told trazadone caused their RLS?...

Okay, so I looked it up to make sure: Trazodone is a super potent agonist on the antihistamine H1 receptor. There is no real difference in the way Trazodone affects the antihistamine h1 receptor compared to diphenhydramine or any other psychotropic substance that has central antihistamine h1 propert...
