I've been *so* incredibly patient, I stopped Riluzole over a month ago because I was having some (speculative) withdrawal symptoms from some Parnate and clonazepam I had used.
Then a friend surprised me by visiting for a week and I didn't want to begin a new med.
Then my liver enzymes were slightly raised, so I did a 2-week course of Milk Thistle, which was accompanied by its own side-effects (anxiety, fatigue, insomnia).
It's been 2 days since I stopped the Milk Thistle, so I feel like I should get some sense of a baseline before starting the Riluzole again. I thought a week (5 more days) might be sufficient. It's been such painful tedium hanging on like this.
