Re: I Think I Found A Possible Cause and Definite Treatment for RLS

Nope, false alarm. However, the Biotin, B1 and methylated B12 do help the body lessen the symptoms but don't cure RLS.

Vein Clinic Consult

Hello I went to get a Vein Clinic consult with a follow up leg vein ultrasound Thursday. The vein doctor says many people who get varicose vein removal treatment due to venous insufficiency notice their Restless Leg Syndrome symptoms are treated with good results. Anybody else had the sclerotherapy ...

I Think I Found A Possible Cause and Definite Treatment for RLS

I think I am on to something here with the RLS cause and treatment regiment. I am dead serious. I'm a 48 year old white male with RLS and the MTHFR gene mutation. I, recently as of tonight, was able to treat my RLS with a methylated form of B12, Adenosylcobalamin 1000mcg. My RLS symptoms subdued wit...

Re: CVS Won’t Ship Gabapentin to House

I got so pissed off I lost composure yelling thru my scarf. I pulled thru and waited until they called and cancelled the first RX. The whole system is broken and the doctors are unaware of the process to be able to assist patients. But it worked. You knew what you needed and insisted you get it. Ho...

Re: CVS Won’t Ship Gabapentin to House

I got my McLean, VA neurologist to call a RX to a CVS with a drive thru. When I drive up they told me I couldn’t get the RX as another RX exists at the first CVS. I got so pissed off I lost composure yelling thru my scarf. I pulled thru and waited until they called and cancelled the first RX. The wh...

Re: CVS Won’t Ship Gabapentin to House

Here I am isolated at home with my wife and two daughters. My neurologist called in a RX of gabapentin but CVS won’t ship it to my house like other medications because Gabapentin is a controlled substance. I’m 48, obese with high blood pressure; high risk for COVID, yet I can’t get my prescribed me...

Re: CVS Won’t Ship Gabapentin to House

It sure seems twisted, doesn't it? Maybe your quickest solution is the one you suggested, to get the doc to re-send to a pharmacy that does drive-thru pickups. I just tried to register with express scripts. It prompts for member I’d or social security number. I used social security number and regis...

Re: CVS Won’t Ship Gabapentin to House

Another option is to have your doctor sent the prescription to a mail order pharmacy, such as Express Scripts. Express Scripts sends all sorts of controlled substances to me through the Postal Service or parcel delivery companies like FedEx and UPS. The problem is that it can take about two weeks t...

Re: CVS Won’t Ship Gabapentin to House

I’m compromising asking the doctor to resend the RX to a CVS with a drive thru.

I can’t buy an N95 mask as they are reserved for people working in high risk jobs.

In the end the doctors get paid and the person is left to fight for sufficient treatment.

RLS while laying down? Then Sleep On An Incline

Last night I experimented: If RLS bothers me lying down then what happens if I sleep upright? I slept on the corner of the couch where the head is above the heart, heart above the waist, waist above the legs and legs above the feet, possibly a 20 degree incline. I fell asleep sleeping uninterrupted ...

Re: Quitting Neupro Cold Turkey

I am stable on 1200mg of Gabapentin in concert with 4x50mg of Tramadol as long as I don't get dehydrated. I do feel the Gabapentin truly wear off the following day around midday or late afternoon. I'm not sure if I'll entertain Mirapex for that. Neurologists Response Hello, prescripption for gabapen...

Re: Quitting Neupro Cold Turkey

Though the 1200mg of Gabapentin and 200mg of Tramadol work to fall asleep I am delusioning myself to believe it is enough. I woke up at 3am as my RLS symptoms crept in again. And 3pm today I was lounging and my RLS kicked in. I need to take something from noon onward to help treat the RLS that kicks...
