Quote from: Over it on 27/10/2012 23:23:19Hello,I have been taking Doxycycline (an antibiotic) for 3 days and my POIS has decreased by 95%. Hey Over It, can you keep us posted on the doxycycline, please? You've only been at it for 3 days, which isn't a long enough test period to draw any conclusions, but it is a promising sign that it's working so far. I've been trying to really focus on my POIS symptoms lately to try to connect some of the dots. While I don't have much/any acne, one thing I've noticed is that my face is always more oily on days with POIS. Doxycycline reduces acne, so is there a link here?? If there is it seems to be a stretch.Another thing POIS reminds me of is that hangover feeling a few hours after smoking pot. Anyone know chemically what the link could be between pois and smoking mj? (From all the posts of Kurtosis I've read, I know his answer to this will be definitely be acetaldehyde poisoning... which I suspect is the case here!)
Hello,I have been taking Doxycycline (an antibiotic) for 3 days and my POIS has decreased by 95%.
I've been doing some research on mj this morning. I can't find much information on histamine releases with use although I don't doubt that it's a factor. Even in regards to the red eyes, supposedly that's not cause by histamines but by blood vessels dilating due to increased pressure and decreased bloodflow. There's a lot more talk about weed's affect on cholinergic transmissions i.e. choline & acetylcholine."Choline is the precursor molecule for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine which is involved in many functions including memory and muscle control." THC's effects on acetylcholine as a neural correlate of reduced cognitive function involve its regional effects on cholinergic transmission in brain regions relevant to learning, memory, etc. Weed has a way of dampening choline all over the place, resulting (at least partly) in the cognitive impairment following acute and chronic use."I don't really know how this is relevant, but thought I'd throw it out there.
Ok, so this might sound a bit random. But can someone give this is a go. Its perfectly safe.Buy some DMSO cream (its very cheap and perfectly safe for delivering nutrients through the skin)Apply to the inside of the arm - i do mine in the middle on the other side of the elbow.Take a capsule of amino acids supplement (find one that cover most of the amino acid range - i use kirkman Amino Support)Apply the powder on top of the DMSO cream on your armApply more DMSo on top and rub into the skin.It can be a bit messy. But if anyone is willing to try this please let me know how you get on. Perhaps do this at the height of your POIS symptoms. If this helps you i can explain my theory. Ps sorry kurtosis for taking you off topic from above.
Hi Kurtosis, the theory is based around using DMSO as a method of transporting nutrients through the skin. In my experience it can work as well as IV and there is alot of medical trails documented on the web that confirm this. I personally think amino acid deficiency play a huge role in the issues we are facing. Why that deficiency occurs in the first place is another matter. But I was interested to know if any one could try this transdermal method of Amino acid supplementation to see if it provides relief to POIS symptoms. It helps me quite significantly and if it helps others then there could be something there worth delving deeper into. So I guess its just an experiment if anyone if willing to try. Its safe and relatively inexpensive.
