I'm with acne1776, perhaps just continue on with doses only before bed. I realise you'll still feel groggy in the morning. I vape before bed and am fine in the morning although it took me about 4 weeks before the morning grogginess faded. However, if I also consume the after vaping bud orally, I'll be once again groggy in the morning. I guess due to the fact I'm a student, I can sleep 12 hours a night and no one notices. So that's ideal but yea especially as RSO is a much higher dose it wouldn't surprise me that it makes you lethargic even if it is supposedly the 'inactive' form. I've read a few of the guys who used RSO for cancer treatment and they say it put them to sleep for ages too.
I read a long thread a few months back where cancer patients using RSO were discussing the heavy side-effects of high dosages.
EDIT: ROLAND must have some pretty potent stuff.
The process of boiling-off the alcohol decarboxylates/activates the cannabinoids. RSO is far from the inactive form.
High Prolactin levels can be caused by adenomas which is a begin tumor on the pituitary gland. They can be extremely small and sometimes they can grow. Levels of prolactin and testosterone can go back to normal, but you can still have issues. Other things that can cause high prolactin levels and adenomas are certain medications, hypothyroid, estrogen taken by mouth, kidney and liver diseases. In women it can go high during pregnancy, but some it does not go back to normal. It can usually dx by a MRI of the pituitary gland and sometimes levels of prolactin will go back normal, but people still have symptoms and problems. If the tumor gets bigger over the years it can cause headaches, bone loss, vision problems etc.
There have been some cases of people having a pituitary adenoma after taking Accutane.
Yes, I have also seen an instance of a post-Acutane patient actually discovering a prolactinoma.
Usually though, we get the MRI and nothing shows up.
I spoke with someone who had a prolactinoma, and his levels were over ten-fold higher than the upper limit of the range.
Most people with the tumor find their levels extremely high, not just slightly elevated as most of the Accutane patients with slightly-high prolactin levels have discovered.
This guy was one of the first people in the world to begin treatment with bromocriptine for a prolactinoma, and it totally resolved his symptoms, shrank the tumor, and he has been on a maintenance dose for the last 30 years.
Typically, pituitary adenomas and symptoms of hyperprolactinaemia respond very well to treatment with dopamine agonists.
Oli, thanks for pointing out that thyroid conditions and birth control can also raise prolactin. Almost forgot about that.
Some SSRI anti-depressants and many anti-psychotics are also notorious for raising prolactin during treatment.
High prolactin and lowered dopamine activity are thought to be one of the main causes of low sex-drive during anti-psychotic treatment.
The thing is, you will have difficulty finding anyone suffering from sexual dysfunction caused by elevated prolactin complaining of having numb genitals.
If anything, genital numbness is extremely common among those with Accutane-induced sexual problems.
It's one of those things that distinguishes it from run-of-the-mill ED or low libido.
To whoever is taking the anti-malarial:
Stay the hell away from Lariam (mefloquine) if you must take an anti-malarial drug.
It is another one of Roche's turds that slipped through the cracks that is highly suspected of causing psychotic delusions and permanent neurological damage.
