Re: Cannabis

Okay, so back from the Dr. I managed to get Pedanios 22/1 (should be Ghost Train Haze, but there is no 100% guarantee), Red No. 4 (should be Crimea Blue, but no guarantee) and Klenk 18/1 (should be Widow, but again no guarantee). Turns out when they send different batches of Pedanios 22/1 into a lab...

Re: Stopping tramadol after 2 months

Wow ... when your sleep is so messed atm ... I wouldn't even think about reducing or stopping Tramadol. Opioids are just the best medication for RLS. When you are under no pressure to reduce or discontinue Tramadol, I would just continue taking it. Oh and I know that so well ... only being able to s...

Re: Stopping tramadol after 2 months

I would simply go by feel and reduce as fast as you tolerate the reduction. Opioid receptors seem to be able to reset a bit faster than other receptors. When I discovered Carbamazepine, which was highly effective for my RLS symptoms at the time, I was able to stop Hydromorphone within 2 weeks. So as...

Re: Pharma Sticky

I'm taking Morphine for about 5 years now. It is the most effective opioid for me and especially in the first months Morphine had additional hypnotic properties Oxycodone and Hydromorphone did not have. Also I remember one case report where a patient was treated with intrathecal Morphine (Morphine i...

Re: Attempting to get off Ropinirole - again

Qyx - I've had a look on line and everything I find states that Codeine max daily should be 240mg. I had that number from prescribing information for doctors for a Codeine XR preparation. I tried to find it again but was unable to. In medical practice, every person has its own limit when the horrib...

Re: Cannabis

Ah ... and I just figured out what strain is behind Bedrocan: it is "Jack Herer" ... on https://www.leafly.com/strains/jack-herer it says the strain is energizing but I never feel much of it and mostly mix it with LA Confidental (Pedanios 20/1 here in Germany). So in addition to the stuff ...

Re: Attempting to get off Ropinirole - again

Oh, and I wanted to say: no idea what your GP told you about Codeine but a reasonable maximum daily dosage would be 400 mg in 24 hours, at least that's how it is approved here in Germany. However there is actually quite some leeway with Codeine. The maximum daily dose would depend on how fast your l...

Re: Attempting to get off Ropinirole - again

Please don't give up and fight for you rights. I can imagine that this is a distressing experience. I would have told the Dr that putting her arm around me, her empathy is doing nothing to improve your situation. The frustration and tears you experienced, I've experienced them many time myselfs.

Re: Cannabis

So damn, just checking the availability of Cannabis and it turns out Red No. 1 is not available in Germany at all. We only have Red No. 2 and Red No. 4 (plus Orange No. 1 and Blue No. 3) from Tweed. So I guess I am gonna try Red No. 4 which is supposed to be an indica strain for the night as an alte...

Re: Attempting to get off Ropinirole - again

Wow! ... You can't be expected to wait for 2 years to finally see a Neurologist where you don't even if he is knowledgeable in RLS and augmentation issues. This is just flat out ridiculous. I have my doubts if she its even realising all the trouble you are having and that it is only going to get wor...

Re: Tapering clonazepam before methadone treatment

Thank you for the link to The Ashton Manual. After studying the entire manual I began a slow taper given the many years I was taking 2 mg. clonazepam. I was able to taper to 1.5 mg and a few times to 1 mg. the past six weeks and have not yet considered the switch over to diazepam. Unfortunately, my...

Re: Cannabis

Red No #1 is available here but as far as I know not all the others you mentioned. Germany does import all of its Cannabis from Canada and the Netherlands. So we only get what is not needed in those countries. Because of horrible laws and regulations production in Germany most likely won't start bef...

Re: Cannabis

Cannabis is not always 100% reliable but it helps a lot. It seems like that I should, maybe after 3-4 months take a short break of 7 to 10 days to reset my receptors a bit. As far as I can tell there isn't any tolerance when it comes to the analgesic properties but there are for sure some when it co...

Re: Opioid Recommendations

Hydrocodone is something different Naloxone. Hydrocodone is a classic opioid, chemically very similar to other classic opioids like Oxycodone, Hydromorphone or Morphine. Drugs like Ropinirole or other dopamine agonists like Pramipexol don't have a negative on opioids or block their effects in any wa...

Re: Cannabis

Okay, another update. So as mentioned in previous posts I increased my CBD dose because I noticed it can massively improve the time I need to fall asleep. But guess what happens when you take too much CBD .... well, you guessed right: it will cause insomnia. At lower doses CBD seems to improve the e...
