Re: New parkinsons drug

I looked up the drug on internet and it turns out to be not a prescription drug but something that can be ordered online. It is called Atremorine. It sounds too good to be true but maybe there is something to it.

Re: Augmentation

Thank you Holland, I do need something very badly. I don't sleep, at all, until about 4 or so when I drink a cup of coffee. Then I sleep for an hour or two. Then eat and maybe sleep another hour or so.

Augmentation

I was on mirapex, then the other one(pram..) forever with severe augmentation. Been off all dopamine agonist for a year or so. My neurologist wants to put me on requip but I am resisting.

How and who to see at sleep center?

I am really thinking about going to one of the sleep centers. Either Houston or Atlanta since I am in South Ms. How do I go about doing that and which place is better? Which Dr. is best? Is it really worth it? My Dr. here in Ms. doesn't know what to do with me. I have used many of the usual meds. bu...

Re: Kratom is working for me

Be careful! I used kratom a few times and now I am having liver problems. I don't know that it was that but I think it was.

Re: ASMR - Sleep Whisperers

I have been listening to asmr videos for a month or so and while I don't get tingles, I find them relaxing. They take my mind off my legs, somewhat. They help get me through the night .

Re: Midnight Carbohydrate Snack

I often eat when I have rls. I think it may just be that it takes your mind off it, so for a while there is relief.

Re: Bad reaction to herbs and any sleeping meds.

Gaba is an herb, I believe. It is not gabapentin. It just seems like everything that is suppose to help RLS just makes it worse for me. I have taken just about everything that is prescribed for RLS or sleep.

Re: Another year of relief

I have never heard of the diet you are on. What made you think to try it for rls? I am very happy it is working for you.
