Re: For UK Members

Here in Europe there are two different versions of Oxycodone extended release forms on the market. One version is just Oxycodone and the other is Oxycodone + Naloxone which is way more expensive then regular extended release Oxycodone with only minor benefits. They added the Naloxone to reduce probl...

How expensive is treatment for RLS in the U.S.?

Since Donald Trump got elected I follow closely the news from the U.S. I got a subscription for the Washington Post, read the top Articles at the NY Times and watch the top stories from CNN, FOX, MSNBC, etc. and independent media on YouTube. Just to get a sense of whats going on in the U.S. because ...

Re: There's hope for some of y'all....

Wonderful news. I do believe that some of these drugs can cause horrible worsening of symptoms until it isn't what we had in the first place. Pharma meds are not always appropriate. Hope you have a very, very long reprieve. Ya, I agree. Looks like the meds you took were worsening or even creating a...

Re: RLS, Fatigue, and Klonopin

Mark, my experience with DAs is that I am initially sleepy. Then I start awakening through the night with greater frequency. Both drowsiness and insomnia, IIRC, are listed as side effects, interestingly. For me, the awakenings are accompanied by a fast rise in body temp; I cannot fall back to sleep...

Re: RLS, Fatigue, and Klonopin

So, I've been on Neupro for 3 full days now, starting the 4th today. I've had a constant headache and more fatigue on the patch. The fatigue is much different than what I had on the klonopin alone. I can see where those side effects could dissipate over a few weeks. But I'm also irritable/angry all...

Re: RLS, Fatigue, and Klonopin

My doc did say that she's ok with an opiate, if needed, but wants to make sure we try the other DA's first. I was on mirapex for quite some time, but ended up with significant insomnia. But that was after several years. The requip and horizant were horrible for me. Lots of insomnia and augmentation...

Re: RLS, Fatigue, and Klonopin

I haven't read through the other answers because I am short on time and maybe somebody already posted what I am going to write. So all Benzodiazepines will worsen your sleep quality if taken over a longer period. Some are not that much affected while others even notice how one single pill will drama...

Re: Is anyone else still on clonazepam?

Hey, what the hospital did is in my opinion a mistake. Sounds like she is suffering from anxiety / panic disorders. What she needs is a psychotherapy and maybe, just maybe benzodiazepines in emergency situations. Benzodiazepine withdraw symptoms can last for months and in some cases even years. Deal...

Re: Is anyone else still on clonazepam?

Rick, I believe I wrote you awhile back about your use of Gabapentin to get off a benzo...sorry, I had a particularly bad night so my memory is not working so well. I'm not on Clonazepam but my mother is and trying to get off of it. She has a sleep movement disorder but not RLS. She just got a pres...

Re: Is anyone else still on clonazepam?

Benzodiazepines helped a lot at the beginning. Especially Diazepam and Clonazepam was helpful. However I was suffering from horrible side effects like severe social anxiety and later depression the longer I took them. Then it was pure horror to stop them. Because of physical dependence you can reduc...

Re: How to get dr to listen?

I haven't heard of augmenting on tramadol before. I am surprised! I use it 2-3 times a week for PMLS. The rest of the time I take norco. Augmenting under Tramadol is not as common as with DAs and it usually takes longer. But when you have problems with any antidepressent who works as serotonine reu...

Re: How to get dr to listen?

I've just always dealt with it. It used to hit once or twice a month when I was younger. I had a day bed so I would propose my.legs up on the back and that relieved the symptoms. It didn't start to get real bad and consistant until I was pregnant with my son and then after. As I read a few times th...

Re: How to get dr to listen?

I agree it is awful to get it in the arms - even more difficult to achieve even temporary relief. Baths in Epsom salts can help. Also you could try Kratom which works for some people. As long as you don't have access to Tramadol or any othere opioid, Kratom just might be the perfect solution for yo...

Re: How to get dr to listen?

I talked to a sleep specialist who treats rls in my area and I need to get a referral from my dr....ugh fingers crossed he gives it to me! RLS is a primary sleeping disorder. So seeing a sleep specialist is obvious the right thing to do. Your dr should understand that, You said you are 31 years old...
