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 (5 days ago):
Rainbow Light changed their formulation...or our store carried a different version. This version uses Genistein (geniVida) and Ginger juice extract, Milk thistle. Other version didn't have those.
From this study (6 days ago):
Took tetracycline starting in 1966 (250 mg/day) for cystic acne until 1984. Increased dosage over years to 1000 mg/day. Took Accutane in 1984 had remission for 18 months. Cystic acne returned and took erythromycin for 1yr.
Took another dose of Accutane and developed sever case of Rosacea. Had to cut many things from diet and take different antibiotics over the next twenty years. After that, kept a regimen of alternating augmentin and minocycline every couple of months 875 mg and 100 mgs. also used Metrogel 1% topically twice daily. Also took L-Lysine (12,000 mg/day). While continuing to watch my diest, this regimen worked until just recently. I had just switched back to minocin and developed a brownish gray hyperpigmentation to the left and right sides of both eyes, in the upper part of eyebrows, above both eyes on forehead. Stopped taking minocin and went back to augmentin. Pigmentation did not go away. I went to a dematologist who started me on Oracea, Metrogel, and sunscreen. He did not think it was medication related. I have been using a Retinol Correxion Eye Cream (ROC) which lightens the dark areas somewhat but condition persists. I have been doing this for less than a month. I am wondering if it will take laser treatments to deminish the hyperpigmentation? I have read where the Alexandrite 755 nm laser has been effective, or if I stop taking the Oracea and give some time for the dark areas to fade. I rally need oral antibiotics for the control of the Rosacea however, but it's not worth the risk of the disfiguring hyperpigmentation.
