Re: RLS, Depression and Anti-depressants

Steve, I don't think there is anyway I can even try Wellbutrin or possibly any AD after reading about your horror story. Thankfully, the doctor stated they take RLS very serious since there is an increased rate of suicide among severe RLS patients. She wanted me to try the mood stabilizer topiramate...

Re: Emergency Room Nightmare

Steve, I really hope you sue them over this on principle if anything else. I had a situation where I went to the doctor to get some medication and was honest about the suicidal thought. I also had a counseling appointment right after that and told them and they ended up lying to me, calling the poli...

Re: RLS, Depression and Anti-depressants

One more quick thing on ADs. I read where problems can happen getting off the AD, but this is usually when someone has been on it longer than 4-6 weeks My solution for this is to only take the AD for 4-5 weeks, get off for a few months, and then take it for another 4-5 weeks or whenever I need a bre...

Re: RLS, Depression and Anti-depressants

Rustsmith/Steve, I'm curious as to why you can't take an AD and if so, which ones you tried that activated the RLS or insomnia. I would opt for tramadol, but I have tried it and got sick as a dog. I do some exercise ie walking, swimming, stationary or regular biking which helps a LOT. However, I can...

Re: RLS, Depression and Anti-depressants

I am happy to report that I got the heel surgery in June and the doctor did one FANTASTIC job. No more scooter!!!! Likewise, Dr. Ondo has helped me get the sleep under control with an iron transfusion and decent medication so I am sleeping. The depression is not as chronic as 2018 when I had it for ...

Re: RLS, Depression and Anti-depressants

I have recently been needing an antidepressant, but can't find one that will work with my insomnia and RLS. The one I took 30 years ago was a tricyclic (pamelor) and I had a terrible time with sleep when getting off the medication. That was when my sleep was pretty darn good. And that drug is one of...

Inlfammation and RLS

I have been reading a few things that inflammation is tied to RLS. I eat a very clean diet, but have had an enormous amount of stressful events in my life and stress increases inflammation. Curious to know if anyone has looked into this possible link.

Re: new ideas for RLS

Update: Foot pain came back. Getting foot surgery this week. Thankfully, I'm on a great drug combo horizant and Balsomra where I am sleeping about 7-8 hours a night. The hormones still impact the RLS and sleep, but I don't think it' impacts it as much as I thought before. For me, I think stress is o...

Re: desiccated liver powder

They have desiccated liver pills that are much more convenient than the powder. I will be getting surgery this Thursday and have to be off ALL iron for 1 week. The desiccated liver has been a god send for helping me out. With meds, I'm sleeping good thanks to the desiccated liver. Also was able to i...
