Re: Next Foundation Webinar - Opioid Advocacy

Yankiwi, your post rings such a bell for me. People want to help. I have a friend who constantly offers advice gained often from weekly magazine type articles, the main piece of advice being to try tonic water. She tells me this at least once a month. Also to relax with white noise. I have to admit ...

Re: Intermittent Fasting

yawny - isn't it all such a roller coaster. Who'd have thought that a hard boiled egg in the morning could add 3 lbs in two weeks. Never mind a supplement causing fatigue. I'm so glad that your fasting is working for you. I also got rid of skinnier clothes as they annoyed me ... hanging there in the...

Re: Intermittent Fasting

Ann and yawny - you have tried and test this intermittent fasting and it has worked for both of you. I've seen comments on this 16/8 but haven't before read any information. I certainly need to knock off quite a few pounds. Over the last few years I also have gradually expanded and accepted it, to t...

Re: New to Iron

Re: Just joined

Earl - For the continuing RLS do you think you could try this with Edith sitting on a suitable height chair - I would sometimes fill a bucket with cold cold water (even adding ice from the freezer to help it along) and put both lower legs into it, or one leg at a time if easier for you both, splashi...

Jimmy - you tried, and now you know. You will no longer wonder --- if ?

Re: Dipyridamole

Holland, thank you. I am very happy to have learned about the half life and decline from your post. I agree with you regarding the exhaustion of lack of sleep - for many years I have worked on 3 - 4 hours nightly. I also understand that although we know there is a benefit to pacing any changes....

Re: Dipyridamole

Last night's dosage worked not too badly when reducing from 375mg to 225mg. Well done. I'm wondering if there's a case for sticking with that 225mg dosage for few nights, see how that goes, and if it's good .... then reduce further. i.e. bearing in mind any half life effects of the drug, checking ea...
