During Q&A I'll try to keep an eye on the chat box for questions.

I took the slow release Gabapentin to see if it lessened my side effects (particularly fatigue), but for me it did not.
Dolores Kavich
01:07:05
I took Gralise but it didn't last 24 hours for me. I don't remember what the dose was
Barry Smith
01:08:59
Just started Gaba 3 days ago. Told to only start with nighttime dose, not all day. Wondering if I should be taking during day also. Second, I had some success with CBD oil for awhile but it wasn’t sufficient. Can I continue with CBD with Gapa?
Lucinda White
01:09:02
no anti-seizure drug worked for me. Went up t0 4800 mg on Neurontin. No SE
Karen Doering
01:11:26
If you stop it do you notice the difference
Sarah S
01:11:44
Originally took gaba 900me TID for back pain prior to PN and since it wasn't working while I was in the hospital, they took me off of it. Didn't help at all.
Linda Benson
01:12:00
Barry Smith - To answer you question, allways talk to you doctor or pharmacist before mixing drugs, even CBD.
Brenda Cheadle
01:13:53
Synergistic effect by combining Gabapentin with amytriptline- 10 mg is helpful
Sarah S
01:16:14
Lyrica and Cymbalta made my fingers swell up like sausages. My feet were also swollen by these meds. My doc has listed I'm allergic to it. Wasn't on either of them long enough to see if any difference in pain. Swelling started within two days. . . .

Rebecca Hotop
01:21:15
Thanks. Theres’ another one on the desk.
Lucinda White
01:26:43
I'm taking tizanidine (Zanaflex). I think it helps with fascillations (sp?) but not pain
Birgit Palotas
01:27:50
I'm curious has anyone any experience with Homeopathy, or herbal therapy, Infrared therapy or Ozone...basically alternative treatments....will this be covered in this meeting??
Lucinda White
01:30:29
Duloxetine gave me collagenous colitis. Docs don't always make this connection so if you get cc (diagnosed by biopsy) check on this.
Linda Benson
01:31:52
Brigit P. Just drugs and supplements are planned topics so feel free to bring up herbs and homeopathy.
Jen Roland
01:32:14
I take 90 MG Cymbalta at night only. It makes it possible for me to sleep.
Birgit Palotas
01:35:40

Dee Duffy
01:50:37
Unfortunately have to leave for an appointment, I’ll be checking back for the recording. Thanks so much!
Karen Doering
01:55:53
Hmm I am taking RALA maybe that is why my pain is low
Karen Doering
01:57:30
No omega 3s ???
Sarah S
01:58:58
RALA can have side effects of hair loss, brittle nails. I take biotin for this as my nails were getting brittle.
Karen Doering
01:59:18
Ahh omega 3 next screen
Debbie Kutner
01:59:36
And take the Biotin a couple of hours before or after the RALA.
Karen Doering
01:59:38
I take biotin as well
Linda Shannon-Hills
02:02:18
Michael... you tell people to not read, yet you constantly say... I read about this...
Debbie Kutner
02:03:29
His point is that if you look hard enough (without keeping things in perspective) you will find all the bad stuff you want!
Linda Shannon-Hills
02:03:56
Good for people to read but consult with their doctor.
Lisette Palmer
02:06:23
What do you look for in a Naturapath.
Brenda Cheadle
02:09:43
CVS makes their own brand Turmeric Complex 500mg with Black Pepper capsules I take with food 2X day
Brenda Cheadle
02:12:59
If you take too much Biotin you may get ringing in your ears. It takes time but it does go away when you stop taking it. Read ingredient on supplements carefully as you may find there is already some amount of these vitamins included- my B Complex, for instance, also has vitamin C added, to my surprise.

R-ALA really helps me at night when I can't fall asleep because of weird feeling in soles of feet.

I take 1-3 ounces straight pickle juice just before bed when I've been active n my feet during the day. It's not 100%, but it helps a lot.
Debbie Kutner
02:29:36
I take Magnesium Malate. Supposed to be less diarrhea effect and helps with sleep. So, I read!
Nancy Bosch
02:30:03
What is it in the pickle juice that helps? Do you know?
Chuck Barnhart

Sarah S

In Massachusetts you can go to the dispensary and they have qualified people to assist you with needs. CBD THC and they will keep a profile for what you have tried, etc. Very well educated and informed.
Chuck Barnhart
02:41:14
Here in PA the dispensaries don't sell CBD.
Barry Smith
02:41:35
NuLeaf will ship to every state
Chuck Barnhart

Just the 'hard' stuff with THC.
Wendy Clarke
02:42:35
Amazing information today, Being our own healthcare advocate and having this knowledge will make a huge difference. Think its time to find a naturopath to help with the supplements! Thank you Michael and group.
Chuck Barnhart
02:42:57
Yes, I'll be looking for one too.
Chuck Barnhart

This dispensary has medical MJ and recreational MJ. I forget how the consultants are licensed. CBD oil (topical) did not help my feet at all and it was expensive. . .
Sarah S
02:45:34
Worked great as a moisturizer though. . . Fancy, expensive moisturizer . .
Karen Mitchell
