Re: Should I start Lexapro?

Thanks for the advice. I did start the Lexapro. What an awful experience. I had about every bad side effect there is for it, in duplicate! I stopped it after a couple of weeks. I decided to take 2 Wellbrutrin instead. Seems to be working. In my first post, I mentioned my son, who didn't have RLS, we...

It didn't do a thing to help the smoking, but improved the mood, anyway my new nerologist started me on taking gabapentin, and I am up to 400mg a day, and it hasn't stopped the Rls, on...

How do I quit Smoking

I really have to quit smoking, we are expecting our first grand child, and I feel like I have leprosy or something when I am around people. I am 61, and like smoking, which I have done for 40yrs. I am scared to death to try anything that will start the RLS again. I have it under control right now wi...

You are so right Susan about eating the Brownie, it was really, really horrible for at least 12 hrs., then just bad for another 12. I am a smoker, but to smoke MJ, it smells very destinctive, so I am not to sure about that. I have enough Hydrocodone to take enough, but that would be an awful lot, an...

Miripex+Sinemet?

So I went to a new Neuro yesterday, and he had some interesting advice. First I told him that I thought that I was starting to have some breakthrough symptoms and that I just increased the Miripex 6mo. ago(1mg split 3x daiily) and if it is wise to increase it so soon, and he said it would be fine, t...

I did have the appointment with the new Dr, He was a very nice personable guy, that started out with all the right words, then we got down to business. His advice was people don't augement on DA's for about 15 yrs., and that I should just increase the Mirapex, mostly at night (more med means longer ...

I seem to experience itching, like I haven't shaved my legs, or a mans beard that has grown out a bit, before the RLS really kicks in. Lotion seems to help a little but not for long. For me the 2 go together

Thanks for all the help. I have got things to settle down, first I quit trying to medicate myself, and stopped trying the gabapenten, and the Klonipin(sp?) and went back on the alprazolam, hydrocodone, and triazolam. That was an awful week. I am still on the Mirapex, and no augmenting lately, but I ...

Thanks Betty for your encouragement. I think I have figured out what has made me so disorented, nauseated, and goofy. When I decided to try the Clonazepam for 4 days, I didn't want to be on 3 Benzo's, so I quit alprazolam cold turkey, I have been on it 30 yrs.Then I took Gabepentin, and was way out ...
