Re: Is Tramadol continuing my Mirapex augmentation?

To badnights and ican'tsleep--- I haven't been here for about 10 days, and have just barely been making it--- with parsing out my meds from 10:30 every AM until about 9 PM (the times I take the 3 doses my Neurologist has allowed of Pramipexole). There are some times when I don't do well, but general...

Re: Is Tramadol continuing my Mirapex augmentation?

I had a thought about something you said -- "The more sleep you get the less RLS"-- But I don't see HOW I can get more. If my Mirapex doses only take care of the RLS for MAYBE a total of 15 hours per day/night, I won't be able to get the sleep I need. IE-- That's 3 tablets of .125 mg that ...

Re: Is Tramadol continuing my Mirapex augmentation?

Hi icantsleep--- My PCP told me to make an appointment with a "Sleep Medicine" doctor and that is January 14th; yes, MONTHS away... but doctors get booked up so far ahead! I will tell him that I do NOT want any more meds...and whatever he feels I could take just might not be good & int...

Re: Is Tramadol continuing my Mirapex augmentation?

Oh dear! I keep thinking of something else I should SAY! I CANNOT take any strong pain-killers such as Darvon or even codiene in cough medicines...they all make me barf up my meals. If something gets dripped in my veins, it's fine...but a tablet or liquid into my stomach isn't good! So, I even wonde...

Re: Is Tramadol continuing my Mirapex augmentation?

I should add that I am scared silly about what I could be told to take NEXT, if told to get off Mirapex. I'm just going to have to trust my Neurologist's expertise. I hope I'm a LONG way away from being on an Opioid. That is not something I want to try.

Re: Is Tramadol continuing my Mirapex augmentation?

Hi all-- Well, I'm certainly not in as horrid a condition as "icantsleep" is in--- Mirapex/Pramipexol is what I take : The directions were to take .125 mg at 1 PM in the afternoon and then twice that at about 7 PM. But, surely Augmentation has happened and my legs felt squirmy at 10:30 AM....

Re: Is Tramadol continuing my Mirapex augmentation?

To icantsleep Thanks for the description of who was helping you out (for years) until a low-dose Opioid was the next step. If that would work for you, then that Neurologist was a big jerk to abandon you. Personally, I'd be afraid of Opioids, even low-dose. Because of some Augmentation, I got in touc...

Re: Is Tramadol continuing my Mirapex augmentation?

To : icantsleep-- I haven't been here for a couple years because all was going well, but now seems to be Augmentation. But, enough about that for now. I was reading your posting of OCT. 8th 2019 at 7:57 AM. I just can't imagine going through what you are going through, namely with SO many medication...

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: 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...
