Ed,

I'm probably just confused, but are you talking about 3 mg. Clonazepam or Requip and are you trying to taper off Clonazepam? Thanks, Maddie

Thank you Scarlett,

I thought maybe it was because you were afraid to have it done for some other reason. Will your insurance not pay for any of it-assuming you have insurance under the circumstances?

Of course, we all respond differently to all these medications, but I feel like a Mirapex junkie when I see all these low doses being taken, and I take 2 mg.! It has helped me, although I do feel like it might cause some obsessive behavior (nothing like gambling, ***** or anything). However, I can s...

Thanks everyone for your replies. I'm thinking more along the lines of a pinched nerve too, although I expected to feel pain with that. Anyway, just thought I'd ask. I appreciate your responses! Maddie

Numbness in leg

Has anyone ever had one of their legs go numb (only for about 15 seconds usually). Is this considered an RLS symptom? It happens when I'm standing, sitting or even walking. Thanks! Maddie

This question is for Scarlett (if she sees it). I'm just curious about why you declined the sleep study. I had one and was very glad I did. It actually brought the RLS/PLMD to light, whereas otherwise, I don't know if it would have really come up. I knew I moved like crazy, but never thought it was ...

Lexique, I have to get my Zrytec-D from the pharmacist, as you do most OTC allergy meds. with psuedonephrine (I believe it's the culprit-someone correct me if I'm wrong) now. That's because of new laws regarding purchasing these in limited amounts. Thanks to our illegal meth producers, we are all li...

Lexique,

I've been taking Zrytec-D and it has not made my RLS any worse. I take the 24 hour dose in the am. If you don't need a decongestant, then just take the Zrytec.

Sincerely,

Maddie

Slee, I also take Cymbalta for depression, along with Mirapex and Clonazpepam for RLS. The Clonazepam is working now for the sleep and RLS control, but I anticipate having to go up on it because I've read all about the tolerance levels. That's not something I want to do. I too had a horrible headach...

Hi Scarlett, Have you asked your Dr. about taking Requip or Mirapex along with the Clonazepam to try to stop your RLS symptoms? Usually they will prescribe something along with a benzo. to help with RLS. I'm not surprised that the Clonazepam is not working by itself. Let us know how it goes. Sincere...

I have also heard that it works wonders for OCD. I'm not sure if you suffer from depression, anxiety, etc., but I've really only heard positive opinions about it.

If you aren't having side effects right now, then by week four there shouldn't be any. You should start feeling even better. Sometimes start-up se's can last the 4-8 weeks it takes for your body to start getting used to the drug. Of course they can last much, much, less time or you many not have any...

I thought Quinine was being taken off the market, anyway. Maybe if RLS was named after someone famous who has it, it would get more attention and thus more understanding and education.

Moonlight! This doesn't mean you're a failure. .Your a human being with strengths and weaknesses like all of us. Just try not to look back and instead start over. I know it's easy to say, but I go through the same thing with dieting. I'll do really well and then "cheat" or gain back the we...
