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...

Re: Quitting Neupro Cold Turkey

Well, the stable dose for my RLS is 4x50mg of Tramadol and 4x300mg of Gabapentin. I have to take it 4 hours before I have to fall asleep and it wears off about 3am. I would like to have a 5th tablet of Gabapentin in my daily regiment but my Neurologist may not be supportive. "Hello, It is not g...

Re: Quitting Neupro Cold Turkey

I spoke too soon. My RLS symptoms came back when only taking 3x50mg of Tramadol and 900mg of Gabapentin. I have taken my 4th tablet of Tramadol in an effort to get to sleep. My psychiatrist tells me the sky is the limit on Gabapentin as you can't take too much Gabapentin.

Re: Quitting Neupro Cold Turkey

Stable dosage: The 900mg of Gabapentin helps significantly with my RLS but again only if I keep taking Tramadol. I tried to take only 2 tramadol and my RLS symptoms came back. So, the stable dosage for me is 900mg of Gabapentin and 3x50mg of Tramadol.

Re: Quitting Neupro Cold Turkey

10:39pm, My RLS came back so 4 x 50mg of Tramadol and 3x300mg of Gabapentin doesn't resolve my RLS symptoms in my legs after going to sleep. I guess I'll have to go back on Neupro.

So, I took 4x50mg of Tramadol and 3x300mg of Gabapentin, increasing the dose to 900mg of Gabapentin per day. I took them at 1pm instead of the evening.

Re: Quitting Neupro Cold Turkey

Well, 5 days on 300mg of Gabapentin with 4 x 50mg of Tramadol and I already asked my neurologist if I can increase the dose to 600mg per day of Gabapentin. He agreed and tonight I took 600mg of Gabapentin and 4 x 50mg of Tramadol at 5pm. At 1030pm I got out of bed and apprehensive to go back to bed ...

This gambentin and ultram are a good combination. 300mgx1 and 50mgx4 respectively.

Re: Quitting Neupro Cold Turkey

I had two sleep studies done, one at Virginia Hospital Center which was inconclusive. So my doctor sent me to a "better" sleep center, American Sleep Medicine in Tysons Corner, VA who said I have severe sleep apnea. I don't trust the results.

Re: Quitting Neupro Cold Turkey

I just emailed my CPAP supplier, BPGamma, to see if I could upgrade to a ASV. We shall see what the response will be very soon. I currently don't use the CPAP machine as it is uncomfortable and it makes my RLS worse.

Re: Quitting Neupro Cold Turkey

Well, I'm back from the pain center. Note, my RLS was so bad last night I didn't take my 4x 50mg Ultram but one 5mg Oxycodone at 4pm and another at midnight. I slept really well. However, the doctor said they will not prescribe me any opiod as I have severe sleep apnea. Opiates turn off the part of ...

Re: Quitting Neupro Cold Turkey

If Oxycontin doesn't kick in for 2 hours and still only lasts 4-6 hours why not just take the Oxycodone?
