Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

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...

Re: Iron has helped

I took iron sulfate (Nature's Bounty 65mg Fe as 325mg FeSO4) and a 400mg Vitamin C tablet mid-morning on an empty stomach. I did that daily for about 4 years. 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...

Re: Medical Marijuana

I think that most of us have found that the only benefits from CBD have been to symptoms other than controlling movements. In my case, CBD is very effective as a treatment for RLS induced anxiety attacks. Several of us have found that lower doses of THC, just enough to get slightly stoned, helps wit...

Re: A doctor knew about Ferritin !!

Congratulations. Now you have an idea of how I felt earlier this year when I found a PCP who was willing to learn and even took the initiative of sharing the paper on RLS and opioids with other members of the practice. After all the abuse that many of us have suffered with over the years, it is grea...
