arcus senilis runs in our family. I'm wondering if this is a symptom of Alzheimer's (father died 5 years ago & diagnosed with Alzheimer's - no autopsy).
From this study (1 day ago):
I know that methadone can cause nodding. I am way beyond that stage of MMT though. I can admit that at certain points I was a horrible patient! I used everything under the sun to supplement getting high. I've been on doses of 345mgs, 230mgs, Split doses, Liquid, & Tablets. I've been on the dose I'm at now which is a split dose & the lowest dose I have been on, for well over 1 year. I have had clean drug tests I don't use any illegal drugs, I don't drink.
From this study (2 days ago):
For about 6 weeks I have had these symptoms. After much internet research

diet for 4 weeks. I have seen an improvement. I have tried daosin supplement
once..did not help much. Plan on taking 2 capsules next. This is pretty miserable(symptoms,diet and bad constipation issues; taking Fibercon) ALSO, have discovered I am reacting to food dyes and supplements.
