Re: Ketamine and RLS

I did see that ketamine can be helpful for RLS so I made an initial appointment for a consult. this will be for major depression and NOT for RLS. Will keep you posted. also, antidepressants have not worked for me. Apparently the ketamine infusions are a lot more effective albeit a lot more expensive.

Re: Melatonin

Melatonin and Valerian Root triggered my RLS something fierce.

Ketamine and RLS

I have head and read nothing but miracle after miracle about ketamine infusions for major depression. This is a powerful drug used like a horse tranquilizer. and the FDA has not yet approved it for a treatment for depression, only for pain with surgery is my understanding. I'm curious to know if any...

Re: RLS, Depression and Anti-depressants

OK I found a very safe natural antidepressant that should be okay with anyone's RLS. l-methionine. This is an amino acid that produces natural sam e in the body. Sam e has been used for depression. However, I tried sam e over the counter and it activated my RLS. I also know someone with major depres...

Re: Restiffic

They seem to be implying that there is a connection between the feet and the legs. This is the first time I've heard of this. My RLS symptoms are in the back of the knee. I'm not sure how that can be related to the foot.

Re: Massager

I just posted on the restiffic which is a type of foot massager. To me this feels a bit stupid. I can see where it would work for mild RLS cases, but when your RLS is off the roof it's a little hard for me to believe that this could work. I agree with the others that any type of restriction activate...

Re: Pharma Sticky

I am on hormone replacement therapy. I notice that if I take too much progesterone, the RLS goes mad.

Re: Is your DA causing augmentation?

I guess I'm one weird case. NONE of the dopamine antagonoists helped my RLS and Requip even made it worse. The others I got very ill on. Neupro wasn't effective after 3 nights.

Re: RLS, Depression and Anti-depressants

Well that was a rather dumb thing I did. There have been a variety of mushrooms in the yard, some of them did look poisonous. Not doing that again. You do weird things when you are desperate. I did go to the store and got a mushroom blend for immune support. Helps a lot with the allergies. Feet are ...

Re: How long does it take for Lyrica to start working?

I take lyrica. I'd say probably around 30 minutes it really starts working.

Re: RLS, Depression and Anti-depressants

Anne, The hypnosis worked for a few weeks and then the RLS went out of control again. What it did help with most is me making my mind up to get the surgery unless my feet drastically improve. So here's a really strange thing I tried: A while back I read a book about mushrooms and the book displayed ...

Re: Changing my diet may have solved my RLS

Well that theory certainly does not work for me, BUT I suspect it's because the iron all at once impacts my digestion. What did work for a while was eating some type of liver or beef heart every day lunch and dinner. I slept like a baby for 8 hours a night and without any meds at all. It was like a ...

Re: RLS, Depression and Anti-depressants

Hopefully the surgery will not exacerbate the RLS!
