Back again

Post by zenhead » Mon Jul 29, 2013 9:48 am

I was a member of this forum a while ago, but lost track of it. So, I'm back, and hope to be a more active participant. I am SPMS, currently using Cellcept (mycophenolate), Ampyra, tizanadine, Baclophen and Clonazepam (as well as a few suppliments.) I'm interested to chat about most anything - my biggest issues right now are isolation, fatigue and mobility. Especially hoping to find fellow Mainers!
be kind whenever possible.
it is always possible.

Welcome back zenhead :-D

You mentioned fatigue. Magnesium is great for fatigue and anxiety and....... ... -cms-14810

You also mentioned that you take Clonazepam (a benzodiazepine). I took benzodiazepines for several years and then I tapered off of them using what is called the Vallium taper, experiencing very little discomfort in the process. I decided to quit because I had read that, after a number of months of taking benzodiazepines, the only good they are doing is preventing the withdrawal effects. Seems true to me.

Here is where I got my info from:
