I was given xiidra samples, blurred my vision for an hour and a half so I didn’t stick with them. There is a good assistance program where you may be eligible to get them for free. I believe the incomes amount was $60,000 or less. That’s all they asked, not other financial information.

Looking forward to your Naltrexone 'summary' Lori. What is the dosage right now? Easy to get or compounding challenged?

Dec 21, 2019 · Living with Neuropathy - Welcome to the group in Neuropathy

Dawn67 – just curious, and alcohol's impact on neuropathy has been discussed here before. Question is, how much is too much?
Of course someone who drinks 1/5 a day would know that’s too much and definite cause and effect. Some of us enjoy the mental break from our pain and want to drink in the evenings. But then is it just adding to the viscous cycle? Please share what you can about frequency, amount, years of use and it’s impact on neuropathy. Mine has no determined cause but I am determined to figure this out. Most of my life drank little, some years only typical young adult weekend fun, later years with stressful job a little more Frequently and quantity….
Thank you for any insight

Re: B12 supplementation. My Dr. said get the sublingual kind, it didn’t cure my neuropathy but my blood levels are now in an acceptable range. Solgar sublingual methylcobalamin 1000 mcg. Is what I get from Amazon. One per day

@retiredteacher, I am also a retired teacher! Just curious, what were your symptoms? Same as most of us? Tingling, numbness, burning, stabbing needles etc.? Hmmmm perhaps a cause for my supposed 'idiopathic' neuropathy. I can’t buy that….fine one day and within a month wanting morphine for the awful burning!

Hopefully adding B12 helps you Lori! When initial neuropathy symptoms presented I was told my level was low and added the METHYLCOBALAMIN form of B12. Don’t use the other one, cyanide LOL something similar. Well my level went too high so I reduced it to 1000mcg. a day and now my level is fine however it wasn’t a cure for neuropathy. I do continue taking it because supposedly as we age (yeah something else)it is important to supplement B12 since it is common to have less than an optimal level.

Well said Rachel! Different personal chemistries, pain tolerance, mental and emotional stability etc. My biggest hurdle is anxiety! I read up on what may lie ahead, and even entries here, then I obsess and panic and fear the worst, noting every subtle change with my body. EXHAUSTING!
