Re: RLS, Depression and Anti-depressants

Finally, I did talk to a foot and ankle orthopaedic surgeon today and he was able to answer my questions and calm my fears about what the other doctors said about the surgery. I still have 2 more ortho specialists I want to interview. So there is some hope re: the chronic pain. However, it may be a ...

Re: Changing my diet may have solved my RLS

I am on a paleo diet, but can eat dairy as that does not impact my WED at all. Since 2011, I've been on an immaculate diet and I'm proud to say, that some days I decide not to do raw vegetables, but most days I do them. My severe RLS got better with hypnosis, which I did for other things, but I woul...

Re: RLS, Depression and Anti-depressants

Thank you Betty and Anne, I have a new neurologist and he gave me lyrica sample and also a prescription for endocon? which I think is an offshoot of oxycodone. He had to also prescribe me some anti nausea meds since I get so sick on the Vicodin. I need to get the sleep stabilized before I can think ...

Re: RLS, Depression and Anti-depressants

Ann, I do think if I can get over my terror about the ADs, I think I CAN cope with the situation and can keep my job if I get an electric scooter. I just don't feel I have my sleep stabilized enough to do that right now. I feel just like Beth did with her post on death the answer. On good pain days ...

Re: CBD oil

I tried it for a little while and it worked with the RLS a bit and then teetered out. I also used the maximum dose.

Re: Desperate

Ann, I am just to afraid the ADs will activate the RLS which is so out of control right now. Meds are not doing what they need too. Getting 4 hours a night and don't want it to go lower than that with an AD as that will give me cause for more depression in itself. Will try to get on another med in a...

Re: RLS, Depression and Anti-depressants

Doctor didn't prescribe me one. Wasn't sure what to do with the RLS. I guess I'm scared I'll be in so much pain I would be able to stand it with the AD and I expressed that. I'm going to see my neurologist next week to see if he can give me another prescription (i.e. an additional med) in addition t...

Re: Desperate

working out helped my rls and mood immensely. now that i have difficulty walking its seems as if there is no reprieve from the physical pain, rls and depression that has worsened considerably this past year. i think about death ALL the time and i do eat a very clean paleo diet.

Re: RLS, Depression and Anti-depressants

it looks like pamelor might be my best bet. If anyone has used pamelor with their RLS please let me know.

Re: RLS, Depression and Anti-depressants

I have other health issues and chronic pain that have me suicidally depressed for 60 percent of the time this year and lately 95 percent of the time. I have been extremely hesitant to get an antidepressant for fear that I will get no sleep or lose my job from being so drugged from additional RLS med...

Re: lorazepam and RLS

2Basset, I would not rely solely on clonazepam. For me, I have to take it with gabapentin or something else if it doesn't work. For some reason taking the 2 drugs don't seem to bother me. Betty, It sounds awful what you are going through. I hope you get some reprieve soon. Thank you for the new benz...
