A NIDA-supported clinical trial demonstrated that buprenorphine treatment of opioid-dependent mothers is safe for both the unborn child and the mother. Once born, these infants require less morphine and shorter hospital stays compared to infants born of mothers on methadone maintenance treatment. 23 Research also indicates that buprenorphine combined with naloxone (compared to a morphine taper) is equally safe for treating babies born with NAS, further reducing side effects experienced by infants born to opioid-dependent mothers. 24,25 A NIDA-funded study found that treating NAS babies with sublingual buprenorphine resulted in a shorter duration of treatment than oral morphine, and also resulted in a shorter length of hospital stay, with similar rates of adverse events. 26
Dr. Rymer is currently researching regulation of movement in normal and neurologically disordered human subjects, including sources of altered motoneuronal behavior in hemispheric stroke survivors, using electro-physiological, pharmacological, and biomechanical techniques. He currently serves as Director of the Single Motor Unit Laboratory of the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab (SRALab, formerly known as the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, or RIC). From 1987-2017 he served as Director of the Sensory Motor Performance Program at RIC, and was RIC’s Vice President for Research from 2008-2014. He is the most senior scientist at SRALab and the founder of many of its current research programs. Dr. Rymer has established himself as one of the most successful mentors of junior faculty, and has been able to relate to the many backgrounds that can contribute to rehabilitation research. In addition to his roles at SRALab, he holds appointments as Professor of PM&R, Physiology, and Biomedical Engineering at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
Joan, i’m no doctor but it sounds like you may have a Candida overgrowth. I had similar symptoms so I researched the web for months and did a lot of reading on the subject, ask yourself if you’ve been on several rounds of antibiotics, steroids, birth control pills? The best web-site I found to fight candida was Healingnaturallybybee. Please check it out. Candida has been linked to brain fog, thyroid problems and other autoimmune disorders. Some researchers are now even linking it to alzheimers which kind of makes sense. A good diet is key, and exercise-no junk food sugar alcohol yeast wheat caffeine and more. Basically, good food, good vitamins. If it is brain fog due to a candida overgrowth by eating right no cheating your symptoms should improve overtime. It helped me and I hope it helps you. Good luck to you and your family.
