Knee Replacement Surgery

Thanks to all of you for your support, and Betty, your answers were wonderful. I feel so much better about having this surgery since reading your postings. I am copying them and will be referring to them and discussing them. I appreciate the additional notes as you thought of more things. If you thi...

Knee Replacement Surgery

I am scheduled to have knee replacement surgery in a few weeks and am worried about my RLS acting up, not only during surgery but post-op, also. Will my leg jerking cause damage? I am providing the surgeon with the brochure, Surgery and RLS, but still I'm nervous. Has anyone any advice or experience...

RLS and LDN

Susan, Squirming, I posted your comment on the LDN site. You wrote "Somewhere I read that studies showed it to be completely ineffective in people who had taken opioid painkillers on a chronic basis, even after a weaning period of up to a year." I received this answer. "I don't think ...

RLS and LDN

I can’t comment on famous pancreatic cancer sufferers. I have only been checking on breast cancer and have found several success stories. I will post on the yahoo LDN group page your comment about LDN being ineffective on opioid users. I hope that study is wrong. FDA approved Naltrexone 25 yrs ago. ...

RLS and LDN

Yeah, it was difficult last night not to take the Darvocet, but I want to try LDN. This may be long but I feel I should explain my reasons: I have suffered w/severe RLS for 12+ yrs. Every 15 mos or so I need a new prescription or to increase dosage. I now take 3 mg Requip (2 in pm/1 in am). Since Ap...

RLS and LDN

Weeks ago my aunt emailed me requesting I spend an hour looking at LDN. I googled LDN and opened www.lowdosenaltrexone.org An opening sentence caught my attention “FDA-approved naltrexone, in a low dose, can boost the immune system — helping those with HIV/AIDS, cancer, autoimmune diseases, and cent...

RLS and LDN

I typed and posted a msg over an hour ago but haven't seen it appear. If this is a duplicate, pls understand why. My neurologist just prescribed LDN for my RLS but I have to wait another 10 days before taking any, because I took Darvocet-N 100 last Thurs. I need to get it completely out of my system...

Does anyone know how LDN affects RLS?

Thanks for the links. I have been browsing for hours. Have found quite a bit of info. Not sure I can digest it all. Much is over my head. I also found a Yahoo Group lowdosenaltrexone which I'm trying to join. I've got a lot to think about. Thanks for your responses.

I am now taking 1mg of Requip a.m. and 2 mg at p.m. Two remedies that have worked consistently for me fo...
