Morning. Very grey and rainy here. Think I'll use today as my "off" day and do fuck all.
I dropped my keys down the LIFT SHAFT at work last week with no way to get them back or so I thought. The CEO just threw them to me without explanation.
Your employer has slaves. They live in the lift-shafts. There's no other rational explanation.
Well at least I got the keys back
Today I have changed the starter in my kitchen fluorescent light and I feel all Floppety
Hello moopy. I am feeling rather out of it on medication I have been placed on for my back. At least the pain has subsided.
What you on reets, owt worth crushing up and snorting?
Amitryptiline. I don’t know what the kids take these days?
Amitriptyline is SHIT. I was on it to stop me itching at night. It's also used as an anti-depressant (in much higher doses) and made me feel FUCKING DREADFUL in the morning. I abandoned it quickly. Not after I'd stockpiled a fair few for comedown sleep purposes, mind. I'm surprised it's used as a painkiller.
Get on the Zapain. Now THEY'RE fun.
I was told it was to treat the nerve pain.That and codeine seems to have helped for now. I don’t feel quite with it though. Very strange sensation. I will take it over the stabbing back pain though.
Have they given you Pregabalin (aka Gabapentin) too @Rita ? Usually the two go hand in hand for nerve pain.
Pfft. I can't have any fun with that. Come back to me when you're on the pregabs.
No I have to try this first. He did mention trying something else if this doesn’t make it subside but I was just glad to get out the door and quaff the meds to relieve it slightly. I am getting the op on the 17th, so I shall plod along until then.
I only have co-codamol.
Opiate forum now!
I have all the opiates!
legal addictions here we come!
Well, I felt completely shit so I just went back to bed. Got up again at 3. Lazyitis or self-care? You decide.
Amitriptyline is also a sedative, so no wonder it made you feel shite in the morning Shee. I found it an absolute cunt to get off.
Pregabalin is now controlled, so I assume they would try other meds before going there. One surgery I work at every patient on it is being reviewed, and the majority being taken off it.
We're waiting for our surgery to do the same.
My mate was in prison and they were very popular there as they didnt show up on tests
Ron you do make me laugh.
Where is @Mugatu ? Another admin gone AWOL.
Pregabalin? Prison is where a lot of the people I see were started on it. It was pretty freely prescribed going back a few years. I think now it's pretty much only prescribed for neuropathic pain, and then probably not as the go to drug.
The drug screens I do (urine and mouth swabs) don't test for it, but I know that for any death before coroner's court, it's part of the toxicology request. I forget the exact figure, but I'm sure it was implicated in over 80% of drug overdoses. Apparently it potentiates the effects of opiates, so you can see the appeal. I've had clients who have told me that if they are only using methadone (without on top heroin use), combining it with pregabalin gives them a 'hit' feeling which methadone itself doesn't.
Yes where the fuck is he? He hasn't posted for a month and was last online (that I can see) to remove his avatar.
@Indie any knowledge?
Surely we need ACTIVE ADMIN? Indie does a great job, but what about when he is not around?
He was quite cheesed off during some of the political chat, dunno if he's taken his leave because of it or if he's just been busy gluing himself to trains and making massive balloons.
Yep - if you dont want to stoop as low as spice a good night in the pad involves some pregabs!
