Re: Desperate

Desperate, yes the Hybrid oil should be just fine, just make sure you get 5 mg THC to start with. Most of us have noticed that the amount of THC necessary to help sleep also makes us feel stoned. Don't know anything that will really help alleviate that problem, so when I get up at night to pee I am ...

Re: Desperate

Hmmm.. Well I think I would start tonight with 0.25 mg requip and one Norco, taken at 7:30 pm. I'd try that for at least a few days to see what happens. I would take it regardless of whether you're starting to feel symptoms or not. If you get some edible marijuana, I would add 5 mg of THC at the sam...

Re: Desperate

What time in the afternoon or evening do your symptoms usually start? Also do you have any gabapentin, and what size are the Horizant tablets that you have? Why don't you buy some marijuana edible brownies or cookies or something so you can give those a try, you want probably 5 to 10 mg of THC per s...

Re: Desperate

KDJM, welcome back to the Restless Leg boards. One thing that will help us to help you better is to find out exactly what you have been taking recently. Exactly what dose of Requip have you been taking the past couple of nights. How many milligrams? If you have only been taking 0.25 mg daily augment...

Re: Uh-oh... methadone hassles?

Mudslide, so you took methadone + 0.125mg pramipexole + 2.5 teaspoons of Kratom last night?

Re: Uh-oh... methadone hassles?

The consensus (as close as it comes) that I have seen on the general kratom discussion boards is indeed that there is a dose range for sedative effects and a different dose range for stimulant effects. The common knowledge is also that the white and green strains are more stimulating than the red st...

Re: tapering off ropinirole

Hmmm, I missed the "methadone as needed" part of your post. Methadone has a very long Half-Life and so doesn't really lend itself to as-needed use. How are you thinking of using it as-needed?

Re: tapering off ropinirole

I'm glad you managed to get the methadone prescription. It should make coming off the pramipexole quite a bit easier, although not necessarily easy. What is your current dose of pramipexole?

Re: Sleep monitor

Oozz, I have never particularly tried to use heart rate variability information to determine the amount of REM sleep. But as I recall, from a heart rate variability point of view, REM sleep is essentially the same as being awake. I suppose you could use a combination of a movement monitor and heart ...

Oops, my mistake. Authentic Kratom does have red vein Borneo available in 1 oz size to start.

Re: Uh-oh... methadone hassles?

Mudslide, I would get this one. https://www.socalherbalremedies.com/product/red-maeng-da/ They never use the word kratom anywhere on their site so don't be put off by that. They call their kratom products tea. This vendor, SoCal Herbal Remedies is quite reliable. Unfortunately they sell out of the r...

Re: Uh-oh... methadone hassles?

Mudslide, there are lots of different kinds of kratom, the most commonly recommended in these forums seems to be the red vein Borneo. That's what I use. I would start at a half a teaspoon, wait an hour or so and if no effect try another half teaspoon.
