Re: Keeping your prescriptions safe

Thanks for that. Fear of theft is why I keep no more than 3 weeks of opioid meds outside of my safe. We live in a building with enhanced security, but this way even if someone managed to get into my flat, all they would find is some mmj, gabapentin, allergy pills and a few methadone pills. Yes, it w...

Re: Medical Marijuana

Peggy, the first thing that I tried when we visited here 2 yrs ago were the chocolates. I liked them and obviously they worked well since we decided to move. However, they were so crumbly that they could not be split from their 10mg dose. I have seen large chocolate bars at the dispensaries since th...

Re: Medical Marijuana

Now that you have an idea of how the tinctures work and their speed, you might give some thought to trying the edibles. They don't kick in as quickly, but last longer. I can get candies in the form of "pucks" that are disks of the same material they make gummy bears from and these disks ar...

Re: Unhappy

I will agree with what Polar Bear has said. Empty nest is part of the life of almost every parent and is a sign that you raised them correctly. But relationship problems are a totally different matter. My relationship with my wife has been the only thing that has kept me going at times. When a docto...

Re: Kava?

The only time that I tried it was at a kava ceremony when I visited a small island in Fiji. The only reaction that I can remember was a tingling in my mouth and that it tasted like dirty dishwater.

Re: RLS only in feet?

When I was a patient of Dr Ondo in Houston he ordered blood tests that included all four of the tests that are mentioned in Dr Earley's video. I never saw the results of that set of tests, but at my next appointment Dr Ondo mentioned that my results were fine. I know that my ferritin levels had rise...
