Re: tapering off ropinirole

ViewsAskew-- Thanks for your thoughts. Most of the "possible" augmentation is when I want to sit and read; so if I am walking around doing various chores or errands, there's no problem. As I get older and maybe unable to be as active or on my feet for hours, then I'll definitely need to re...

Re: tapering off ropinirole

Fuz_Mind ViewsAskew Hi--- It looks like the last time I came to the discussion Boards was late June, and you replied to something I wrote Re. my Pramipexole starting to augment or not helping me earlier in the day; I had listened to one of the Webinars where there was information about the half-life...

Re: Disability tax credit for rls

Count me among those who used to be really high energy and going the extra mile at work (not that the boss I had ever acknowledged such things!)--- but I'm retired now and my days are described by how good or BAD my sleep was! This is the first Spring that I haven't done even half of what I should d...

Re: tapering off ropinirole

ViewsAskew-- Fuz_Mind I haven't come to the discussion boards for a while because I was working out what to do and my Neurologist made her decision : I was augmenting pretty bad on Ropinirole which I took for maybe 8-9 months (total of 1mg per PM, cut into pieces to spread through early evening). My...

Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

legsbestil!!!! Oh, legs! Your idea (to a point) of housework being to sweep the room with a lace IS EXACTLY WHAT I am like. I have rather a bit of clutter (papers, for the most part), and the grime on my windows certainly needs to e dealt with! When I had my house "power-washed" last year ...

Re: Hellish night due to not taking my ropinerol

badnights--- I began Ropinirole in Aug. 2016 at 1 mg per evening; as it began to be clear that Augmentation was happening, I didn't consult with my Neurologist but decided to cut the tablet in pieces and "get ahead of things" by taking a little at an earlier time. Never went to a higher do...

Re: Hellish night due to not taking my ropinerol

Hi ALL--- I recently tried to get an appointment with my Neurologist to consult. My augmentation is at a point where I KNOW it has to be time to GET OFF THIS ROPINIROLE. I can only get several hours of sleep after going to bed and then I'm up walking around. They say it's called Rebound when your me...

Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

To rvjimzhe1--- I've forgotten, but do you take Gabapentin? The warning on the drug said "NO alcohol"... I guess it might lower your respiration beyond the "just sleepy" effect it provides. (I take Gabapentin and wouldn't dare drink).... Perhaps quite a few of our drugs have warn...

Re: that feeling

To ALL of you--- Rustsmith, ViewsAskew, Polar Bear, leggo_my_legs--- Trying to cope, getting NOWHERE, having people (or cats!) giving you problems are so difficult when we're under stress! Rustsmith, that sounds like a Siamese cat, like mine, actually... very demanding! When my parents were in faili...

Re: Hello from TeriShelly

Hi TeriShelly....

Have wondered how things are going now? Did you find another Doctor--- someone good, someone willing to listen to you? Have you now been given Gabapentin to try & what do you think of how your system "likes" it (or NOT)?

Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

Jim--- Though I'm a woman, I would tend to think sex wouldn't bring on bad RLS... but not sure. Have been divorced for 8 years but sex wasn't in the pictue for a few years prior to the divorce--- nor have I been looking for a man/companion, just want to be alone now. I wondered about HOW you can tol...

Re: Does anyone successfully use ONLY an anti-convulsant?

badnights---

That's why all of these comments about medications are so fascinating! You can be SURE
of ONE thing : any slight suicidal feeling would have me OFF of the medicine right away!
