Hopefully I can find more info about the medication.
It really is quite silly to just guess it.
The pharmacist doesn't know.
My doctor doesn't know.

I am not going out there.
OK a little bit.
Matilda is not what you would expect that I would hold with reverence.
She calms me down.

Definitions:
Pharmacodynamics is the study of the biochemical and physiologic effects of drugs

Pharmacokinetics describes how the body affects a specific xenobiotic/chemical after administration through the mechanisms of absorption and distribution, as well as the metabolic changes of the substance in the body

I think I got this round the wrong way in previous as I suspected. These names always confuse me.
Kinetics is how the body changes drugs.
That must mean dynamics is how a drug changes the body.
Do I really need to know this?
Yes, to annoy Doctors

As I need to curb an issue and I tried Acamprosate before and it was way too strong.
I need to come up with a dose which could work, but I can add more as we go as it were.
I am not kidding.
No dose less than 333mg is given - no research on it.
There are papers of Naltrexone vs Acamprosate.
From what I have read, it is not clear which medication for why the problem.
My preference is to not have my opioid receptors blocked in case of needing emergency pain relief.
So I have to make this up - get up a script from my doctor and it will be compounded (made to order).
What I remember was that after a couple of days of 333mg twice a day it was way too much.
This drug - I don't know which is relevant - pharmacokinetics, or pharmacodynamics - probably both.
Pick a number.
33mg, 50 mg, 75mg or 100mg 3 times a day.
(People are medicated up to 2g of this per day.)
This drug does different things and isn't necessarily everything that it is associated with.

I'm going 50 mg as my choice.
Yes, I actually get to choose this.

What I felt from the 333mg dose was just too much after 2 days.
As this drug builds up slowly, I am considering as best I can how may a smaller dose build up.
It is not simple which is happening - the drug taking control (kinetics) or my body trying to cope with it (dynamics) - I may have that round the wrong way.

I love it! It is dreadful! How much Windows pain we have gone through - if it could have only been this short video - bliss.

What started this thread off.
The orchestra - I think original intention?
This does 'quiet contemplation better' and 'space' better.
The other one does fun.
Hard to know.

I think orch is better, as much fun as the other is.
There is also a flow up of intensity (and down) in a phrase which isn't found in the piano.
You would hope so!
Orch is more romantic.
Piano duet endlessly fun.
Orch is a candle light dinner.
Piano, I wouldn't necessarily say a one-nighter, it has more than that.

As much as the orch is better musically in nearly every way - it is the piano duet for me.

I think why the piano is that I hope I was discerning the different techniques played by the 2 players. Right player looks more showy but it is a team effort. Some nice phrasing by left player. Nice sounds. It takes practice to be able to play like that for either players. It isn't as immediately obvious how an orch works. Charisma, fun, show wins.

Ah. Except for the acoustics. And the live experience.
I think I really would prefer the orch.
The sound would be better with the orch.
The music is sound not Ah! I don't know!

This is difficult to choose.

Edit: Someone may say - you don't have to choose - enjoy both!

Edit final: Orch wins! It is the phrasing, every section of every section. That cannot be bettered. The music seems to be best with the capabilities of an orchestra - and the original piece makes space for each phrase, and makes use of what the different instruments can do to create that contrast.

I don't know: The syncopation in the piano is wonderful. And I love watching and listening to this. And there may be even a slight blues on the back of the beat vibe to it. Sorry can't remember the term.

He gets something so right with the beat which isn't there later on (as in the last few years).
It is about the beat.
