Re: Riding the Big One (RLS 24/7, Hanging Ten)

I don't mean to infer that having RLS can't be bad. Having RLS is bad, especially more for some of us. I am including myself on that list, as I sit here awake at 3:45 am.

Re: Riding the Big One (RLS 24/7, Hanging Ten)

I can get away with about an inch in a glass of wine or beer, but that is all.
I try to remember that there are worse things to have. My son in law has esophageal cancer. He is 47. He has had it a year. Life expectancy is 5 years, but I doubt he will make one more year. He is suffering so much.

Re: Methadone was working, now it's not

I used to take my methadone in the evening, total 10 mg. I got the alerting. I added gabapentin. That worked for awhile. Now I take the methadone 2.5 mg every 6 hours, 2 pm, 8 pm, 2 am, 8 am. Then I stopped the 8 am and just take the whole tablet at 2 am. I don't set an alarm or anything, it is when...

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

I have been taking mirapex about once a week. I don't seem to need anymore than that. It has been wonderful to sleep again without spasms.

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

This is very unusual. I took it Sunday night and have not had any spasms since then. It has been a wonderful week.

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

Even on good nights I am up every few hours riding my bike.
I don't want to take it on a schedule. I took it Sunday night and haven't taken it since. I want to take it on bad nights only. It causes too much weight gain , plus augmentation, but thanks for the suggestion.

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

Last night I cut it in half and it worked. The night started out bad. After taking the half tab, the rest of the night I was able to sleep. Tonight I am sleeping fine, so again, carry over of med from last night. So maybe I will take it every third or forth night may work. Since last night started o...

Re: restiffic?

I took them off after 2 hours. Feet hurt. I don't think they will do anything. Glad I did not pay for them.

Re: restiffic?

My doctor gave me a free set. Going to wear them tonight. They seem difficult to put on. They seem ridiculous to me.

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

Well, when I took it everyday 2 years ago I was a mess in one month, could only sleep 2 hours. I didn't take it last night. I must have had enough in my system, because I had no RLS or spasms. Slept great. My thought was only take it once a week. Like you said Ann, afraid to take it more often. I wi...

Re: Methadone and Gabapentin no longer working well

I took .125 mg I think. I have several strengths. I had broken the tab in half.
Plus I have to remember I can't take it every day, or it will reduce me to 2 hours a night, like it did before.
