Meant to say 2 grams. I'm finally bringing down my dose of hydrocodone somewhat and i'm sleeping longer. So i'm happy about that.

sleepdancer2..Yes that is very useful info. Sounds like its best to take it on an empty stomach.

That was my dilemma. On an empty stomach it made me nauseous, so having some carbs with the med was helpful. I looked it up on what to avoid and saw it was proteins. Lots of good info on using that med on the Parkinson's Foundation's website.

Almost been 2 weeks now since i started this fun adventure. Currently i'm taking..
1 or 2 mg. kratom for any daytime symptoms.
50 mg.tramadol at 5pm.
50mg.tramadol and 200 mg. gabapentin an hr before bedtime.
5mg. hydocodone and a little thc at bedtime.
It's not covering all the symptoms. But i manage 5 to 6 hours of sleep.
I may have to add back a small amount of ropinirole to do any better.

Ok..not ever gona brag about getting some sleep on minimal meds again. The very next night was back to the bad ol days. I keep increasing my dosage of Gabapentin but can't tell that it's doing anything. Called my Dr today to get a script for Lyrica. Hopefully it at least does something. It better...my co-pay jumps from 10 bucks to 50.
