Re: PREGNANCY

My neurologist also agreed but won't prescribe it. It's very crazy. No one should have to choose between having a child or not when there are treatment options. It's for nine months. I'm not asking for a lifetime of opioid or methadone treatment. My symptoms are very well controlled by gabapentin. I...

Re: PREGNANCY

I may look into going to Georgia. That is the closest one to me. I'm going to try and contact them to see if they would be willing to see me once and work that way. Hopefully they will.

Re: PREGNANCY

Well it looks like I may be in trouble. Dr. B was helpful but it was pretty much what I already knew. Opioids are safest. Dr. B prefers methadone. He said it wasn't likely I would find anyone in NC to prescribe it for me. He said it would also be hard to find anyone to prescribe opioids either. Most...

Re: PREGNANCY

Thank you so much for all of this information. It has been so much help! In your opinion are the opioids the safest route? Are the only worries about that the addiction? I've read some things about cabergoline that worry me. From what I've read I feel like opioids are the safest.

Re: PREGNANCY

Thank you so much for your help! I have had my iron checked and it is normal. I have not had that specific test done that I know of. I regularly take gabapentin which of course I have to come off of during pregnancy. I wish we had a WED/RLS specialist around here. It is so stressful wanting to get p...

Re: PREGNANCY

I definitely agree about the opioids but have yet to find a doctor that will prescribe them. I have seen two neurologists and also my ob/gyn has recently said he only wanted me using non-narcotics and category B drugs. It's so frustrating!

Re: Child with RLS/PLMD

I have had RLS since childhood but thankfully has only gotten worse later in life. My mom used to rub my legs and I would take a lot of baths. I take Neurontin and it has been a lifesaver. When I started it it made me very sleepy. I would have to take it around 5 PM so that it would wear off the nex...

PREGNANCY

I am trying to get pregnant. It is so frustrating to try and find something that is approved for pregnancy. My neuro tried me on Tylenol 3 and it works but keeps me up all night. Then I tried Sinemet and was uncomfortable taking it. He said there was nothing further he could do for me. I got a secon...
