    Patty,

    Seems they run out of this stuff pretty frequent, last time was about 2 weeks ago, maybe they cannot send too much through Customs at one time. A note in the listing states they will have more stock on Nov 11 and says you can place your order now and will be shipped when it arrives. Seems they raised the price too, from $34.95 to $36.95. So far they are the only company carrying that brand name, though there are 3 other companies that claim they use the same raw material, OptiPea. They are PeaCure, Mirica and Vitalitus, haven’t tried either of these, plus the dose of active ingredients varies between them.

    I emailed Optipea and they said it was back in stock on Amazon. I checked and it will be back in stock November 11. I ordered some, hopeful to be rid of some of this pain.

    I will update my disease/med info.

    Hi Trece,

    Yes, please do add a sig line and/or intro with your rheumatic disease type and interest in AP as soon as you can. Admin must take a hardline approach to first posts that are flagged as possible spam. Oftentimes, these posts look legit, because it is an answer to a supp question, but lacking any expression of interest in AP, the focus of this forum. Thanks for your understanding and hope to see you on the forum and sharing your AP experiences with us!

    Liz,

    I have a question on taking the PEA supplement. Do you take it on an empty stomach or with meals.

    Also, I am curious. What brought you to the Roadback? In my case I have RA and the discussion have helped me tremendously over the years. I was even bit by a tick after being on the Roadback and it educated me on exactly the best way to treat it.

    Thanks!
    Patty

    Personally I take it as per the directions they stated. AT least one hours before or after meals, with at least 10 hours between doses. Normal starting dose is 2 in morning, 1 at night.

    I am here since I am treating Sclero and Sjogrens with AP and it has made a huge difference for me. If you read some of my back posts you will find info on this. Liz

    Hi,

    First have to say we are all different and dosage can change things, but from what I recall, definitely noticed changes in the first 2 weeks. I think there are a few others who were supposed to start it, so maybe they will chime in with their results to give you a better idea. Liz

    I bought this supplement for my adult daughter who is diagnosed with lyme arthritis. She is on an anti biotic protocol right now for about 7 months. And texted me this morning that she can’t take the pain anymore. When I received it in the mail I was having some upper back pain and decided to try it for myself. And honestly I found relief within a few days. So I ordered more thinking I would do the 3 bottles. But definitely going going to give them to my daughter and see if ahe can find any relief.
