     I forwarded your post to the naturopath I work with on my brain chemistry and endocrine issues from coming off of substances.  He sent me a brief response noting that REM is connected to norepinephrine and would check it out for me.  One of his tools is a bio-tracker which is a meridian assesment device to see what the bodies current state of function is and how it is affected by any given substance.  I understand cravings of any kind to be a sign that your body, brain or soul is needing something and it usually is not the thing you are craving.  I was craving pot recently which I found very strange as I haven't really enjoyed or wanted it for the last 20 years.  When I had him test it out for me it turned out I needed the l-dopa and that's what the pot did for my brain.  When I took a homeopathic l-dopa remedy at those times I no longer craved to smoke.  He is currentlly out of town working on a project but told me he would check it out.  I would really hate for you to go back on the methedone when there may be another possible answer.  There is also the chance the methedone may no longer take care of what is happening and you would have the problem and a methedone addiction without ibogaine as a possible solution.  I remember from your posts years ago that you have an interest in neuroscience.  I hope you can work this through.  I really do feel for what you are going through.  Hope something comes to light that will help.

  I know what I write might label me as "anti-ibogaine" but let me say to those people that the "file cabnet" issues are part of the real scientific methode and like Mash says "the plural of antidotal does not equal data".
  I am all for Ibogaine being studied.  But I have had very serious issues with lack of REM since my numerous dosing with Ibogaine.  I have had 3 four hour sleep study EEG's and 1 three day EEG and no REM was shown during any of these studies.  Also a continuous strobe effect has been bothersome since dosing, and I now am told I have seizures, which I never had before dosing with ibogaine.  
  I can say some people in the so called Ibo community have been some of the most kind hearted people I have come across, or at least seem that way for self interest or for whatever reason.  
  My question to the group is this, has anyone done any studies on these issues and are their any suggestions for  how to get REM during Sleep again?
  I am seriouslly considering getting back on methadone just to function, unless anyone has a better idea, even though it puts me at risk of putting myself in the same situation (no methadone prescription if arrested) as what made me try ibogaine in the first place.
  Does anyone have any advice or point me to studies that address these issues?  Howard? Patrick? Marko? Mr. Glick?  Any suggestions would be appreciated from anyone.
  Thank you for your help.
