Your doctor may be familiar with the eventual "side effect" of augmentation. Augmentation can occur with the dopamine agonists (ropinirole, pramipexole and rotigatine). What happens is that the medication stops working as intended and starts to make your RLS symptoms even worse. Quitting c...

My wife uses CBD tincture to treat one of the symptoms of her MS and it works better for her than any prescription medication that she has ever been given. I have tried it for my RLS and the only benefit that I have seen is that it works great on the rare occasions where my RLS causes an anxiety or ...

Re: Training Brain to Release Dopamine earlier

AriaLittlhous, since you mentioned advil pm, you may need to be careful with that one. Most of the OTC products like it contain a first generation antihistamine such as Benedryl. The first generation antihistamines are known to be frequent RLS triggers. In my opinion, you would be better off with th...

I started with a ferritin level of 42 (I think). Earlier this year I stopped because my ferritin had jumped from about 300 to 650 in six mont...
