Re: Opiates and Non-Texas Prescribers

Re: New to this group

Deb, what you can expect during the appointment involves a number of things. You will probably be given a normal neurological exam in order to rule out other conditions. You will also be asked a number of questions about how often your symptoms occur, what time of day they begin and how much they in...

Re: Experience with Injectafer?

I will add my two cents to the comments by the previous two ladies.

Holland, thank you so much for your help and assistance here. You add a level of perspective that the rest of us can never hope to match, especially when it comes to conditions other than RLS.

Re: What DA to take

Since you have not taken a DA before, the choice between pramipexole or requip would be a tossup. You could end up with nausea from either one, but augmentation for a short exposure is less likely, but not impossible. But since you have been taking kratom for a while and it has been working, would a...
