Re: What Severe RLS is Like

:lol: Since retirement 80% of ebooks and audio I read are downloaded from library, pretty cool and inexpensive. The Library ebooks actually go through amazon kindle. I am reading so much now like 6 books right now and hooked on a comic book series Valerian and Laureline SF. Haven’t read comics since...

Re: Kratom physiology

I take just Suboxone for RLS (after going through practically everything else over many years including methadone). I also take Kratom once in awhile now mostly to snap me out of depressive moods but it also helps my RLS. I keep a large supply that I purchased online in case I can no longer obtain o...

Re: Recent restrictions on length of opioid prescriptions

I recently went to my YEARLY appointment with my sleep doctor to renew my Suboxone for another year, but because of the pressure being put on doctors (the doctor told me this) he now wants to see me every 6 months to extend my prescription for Suboxone (buprenorphine which is an opioid). I have no i...

Re: "drug holiday" from Mirapex

I also took pramipexole for 6 years and it worked really well until augmentation. The mistake I made (and my doctor) was trying to keep using it on and off for several years after that. If I could rewind time I would have called it good after six years and would have never used it again. There are m...

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

I see another 5 weeks have gone by since I have been on here. There is all kinds of things I could be doing but mostly work out in the yard getting the plants and yard looking nice. It makes me feel irritated about myself as I have the talent to do many things but apparently not the inclination to a...

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

Actually my wife found this Cow Thymus medicine and I was over whatever it was in a few days. This is the third time this stuff has worked on me to reduce the effects of getting sick. It worked on my wife even better, she was coming down with it yesterday and is already okay. She has us take it righ...

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

Dang I think I am coming down with flu, I am stopping St John’s Wort in case it is from it. Just took my temperature though and it is up 2 degrees. I sure hope it is not flu as we were having family here for Easter. I may have to just stay in bedroom while they are here. The year before we both got ...

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

One thing the 1000mg a day St John’s Wort seems to be doing is taking away my appetite, either that or I am coming down with something. Also seems to make me feel warmer. Not sure if I feel much better but then it could take awhile. I almost never loose my appetite which is strange. 2 nights ago I f...

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

I haven't used St John's Wort but have read about it from time to time and am aware that it can cause various interactions with other medications. I dare say you have found these interactions as you have investigated it's use. Please be careful. I will be careful. It may not even do anything but th...

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

I investigated the interactions more on web and it says it may lesson strength of Suboxone. I’m going to get some though as I am taking only 75% of my prescription now, so I could take the other 25% if it weakens it. If it takes more than that then I will stop taking St John’s Wort (by the way it ha...

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

How about St Johns Wort for depression? I searched on St Johns Wort on here and it does come up a few times but then few people take Suboxone like I do for RLS. Difficult to find anything on web about interactions. I am going to take it unless anyone has some negative feedback on using it. Thanks in...

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

Not possible to see doc sooner unfortunately.

Interesting thought about which reality is real.

Exercise does help me and have not done much lately, maybe I will work on it lol.

Seems many of us RLS people have depression too, not surprising, take care.

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

Hey thanks everyone. I am going to a new general practitioner doctor in about a month. Our insurance has changed and so all are doctors are changing. Although I am going to my old sleep doctor, found out yesterday it will be $250 to see him once a year to continue getting Suboxone, not bad. Actually...

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

Several months have gone by since coming here. I have had a lot on my mind. Extremely sad. Some ways I am really healthy but other ways I feel defeated. Nothing will really get better and I just have to try to live with it. I try to hide out by reading and or listening to audio books. Movies too but...

Re: What Severe RLS is Like

We have an Amazon Echo and alarms are set for my meds but even then I shut off alarm sometimes and get distracted. Later I find out the hard way I haven’t taken them lol. I seem to be doing well. I have lost 45 pounds and in 34 waist pants and medium shirts which has not happened in this century :D ...
