Drugs and Supplements used for People With PN - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
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.
I took Gralise but it didn't last 24 hours for me. I don't remember what the dose was
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?
no anti-seizure drug worked for me. Went up t0 4800 mg on Neurontin. No SE
If you stop it do you notice the difference
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.
Barry Smith - To answer you question, allways talk to you doctor or pharmacist before mixing drugs, even CBD.
Synergistic effect by combining Gabapentin with amytriptline- 10 mg is helpful
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. . . .

Love your cat Rebecca Hotop. :-)
Thanks. Theres’ another one on the desk.
I'm taking tizanidine (Zanaflex). I think it helps with fascillations (sp?) but not pain
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??
Duloxetine gave me collagenous colitis. Docs don't always make this connection so if you get cc (diagnosed by biopsy) check on this.
Brigit P. Just drugs and supplements are planned topics so feel free to bring up herbs and homeopathy.
I take 90 MG Cymbalta at night only. It makes it possible for me to sleep.
Thank you Linda...Good to Know....I'm more interested to actually heal the Nerve Damage ...while I understand the aspect of pain management ….Good Luck to Everyone til next time Bye Bye Have a Blessed day Everyone

I thought the B12 stopped my electric shocks I only took amtrimptylin a few days
I am diabetic my biggest issue can’t walk some pain at night
I will keep this patch in mind if needed
Unfortunately have to leave for an appointment, I’ll be checking back for the recording. Thanks so much!
Hmm I am taking RALA maybe that is why my pain is low
No omega 3s ???
RALA can have side effects of hair loss, brittle nails. I take biotin for this as my nails were getting brittle.
Ahh omega 3 next screen
And take the Biotin a couple of hours before or after the RALA.
I take biotin as well
Michael... you tell people to not read, yet you constantly say... I read about this...
His point is that if you look hard enough (without keeping things in perspective) you will find all the bad stuff you want!
Good for people to read but consult with their doctor.
What do you look for in a Naturapath.
CVS makes their own brand Turmeric Complex 500mg with Black Pepper capsules I take with food 2X day
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.
No wonder Michael is ignoring me he can’t see chat
This was super informative, thank you! I have to run get my kiddos off the school bus. Bye!
Nancy can you type out meds you take at night
Thank you everyone, I have a230 mtg. take a look at the periphex website, lots of info there.joe
There is a great book called Breathe— it gives the background on why we need to breathe and at the end gives exercises
R-ALA really helps me at night when I can't fall asleep because of weird feeling in soles of feet.
I don't have a way to raise my hand on the computer. Does Michael just look when we physically raise our hands.
what was the first name of Dr. Wild?
Sorry the book is Breath- the new science of a lost art
which one to move bowls?
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.
I take Magnesium Malate. Supposed to be less diarrhea effect and helps with sleep. So, I read!
What is it in the pickle juice that helps? Do you know?
Getting oxygen to nerves is key
I take CALM - Can buy at Whole Foods.
Vinegar and salt are the main ingrerdients.
morning or night
Maximum magnesium is 400mg daily according to my gastroenterologist
PEA is palmitoylethanolamide, 600 mg (300 twice a day)
I’d like your recipe for turmeric paste please
To raise your hand click on the group/participant icon at bottom of screen and you will get the raise hand message
What was the drug Linda Hahn said she takes two of that helps her sleep.
I’d be happy to give you mine
Before I forget, BluEmu cream (as advertised by Johnny Bench) also works to calm down the soles of my feet as I try to fall asleep.
Be careful with the CALM. . . When it says start with 1/4 tsp. . Follow directions. . . I didn't and was in the bathroom ALL night! LOL
Yes, watching sugar intake is very key.
NuLeaf CBD worked well for awhile. 15mg twice a day, available in capsule form.
Bluebird Botanicals CBD was approved by Consumerlab.
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.
Here in PA the dispensaries don't sell CBD.
NuLeaf will ship to every state
Just the 'hard' stuff with THC.
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.
Yes, I'll be looking for one too.
Anyone who is one blood thinner really has to be careful with supplements.
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. . .
Worked great as a moisturizer though. . . Fancy, expensive moisturizer . .
Shikai CBD body lotion, 750mg, odorless & colorless.
THC infused chocolate. I take a 1/2 square! Not for daytime use . . .
Use topical THC/CBD pain cream by Care by Design 150 mg of each. very helpful for foot tingling. Has peppermint scent
Cannabis-legal states only: Recovery lotion, 1000mg CBD + 20mg CBN, terpene enriched.
It’s in my Krill Oil!
how do I print the chat?
Oh, the Recovery lotion is very perfumey.
Hit the 3 dots next to “File” and click “Save Chat"
Water is huge
Thank you Diva!!!
did that, where is it stored?
Do you have a Mac or windows?
CbdEmporium.com CbdEmporium Relief Cream 1000mg Helps temporarily but they have been out of it
There should be a zoom folder that you can just search for in file explorer and it should be in there
As always Michael, Thank you!!!
On Macs if you go to your documents folder there’s a zoom folder in there and there’ll be a folder with today’s date on it
And it should be in there
Tai chi is great
