maybe try taking at night right before bed? that's when i take it and it seems to kind of reset my system each night. that plus the LDN doing their magic overnight, ok, that competing with the laying in one position trying to undo the good of those two drugs! smile

anyway, what i've found is that i get incredibly sleepy because my BP drops really low (as low as 80/55) about 45-60 minutes after i take it. then really zonked out for about an hour, hour and a half, and incredibly dry mouth during this time (drinking a whole glass of water when i take the drug and then an hour later when it starts to kick in helps or being asleep when it kicks in). then i feel the muscle relaxant affects for up to about 5 hours total. they say it lasts in the blood stream about 6 hours. so my body seems to perform as the literature describes.

also, i only take 2 mg. if i took more, not sure what would happen: maybe i'd accidently stretch my head right off my neck! LOL! no, rather i'm afraid my BP would drop so low i'd stop living. i'd like to avoid that if at all possible.

I worked from home today. It was nice, but I was oh so busy...still am.

I wanted to ride my bike but I needed to walk too (it's a team thing from work)...so I did both. I rode out about 3 miles (not far for riding...hardly even count) and then walked back. So for today:

Monday: walk 3 miles (60 minutes) and 30 minute stretching

Tuesday pouring with rain all day so only short walks for Scoob and me probably about a mile total.
Today looks the same very wet so wont be going far.

very sorry to hear that no
what do you mean by that? slowing it down? my bp drops very low: as low as 80/55 but its been doing that for about 10 years now and seems to be ok, i just have to be prepared for it. or do you mean racing? that would be kind of the opposite of what is common for a muscle relaxant to do. could you take less? or maybe try skelaxan, i've heard good things about that drug as well. again, sorry!

me: got back from chiro just after it got dark, didn't want to get hit by a car on our street. so did the cul-de-sac (good streetlight lighting and very few cars), a loop is a half mile. so did a short walk tonight, with flashlight in hand. find its good to walk right after the chiro, helps his work!

tonight: walking 1 mile, 20 minutes

hi everyone! busy with work as well! grading grading grading! roll
better than studying studying studying.......i think?

Thunking unevenly. Oh well, it's a quality problem. I feel SO MUCH BETTER than I did a few months ago, I have nothing to complain about!
