Buprenorphine vs Methadone

All, I appreciate any input you have regarding how methadone affects mental health and how alerting it is compared to buprenorphine. I am on tramadol Er and buprenorphine currently. I also take clonazepam for mood stabilization. Buprenorphine has really helped RLS, but lately I've noticed significan...

Re: Involuntary leg movements & knee surgery

I made sure I went through the RLS Foundation's suggestions with the surgeon. Before I know all this, I had wisdom teeth out. They had to wake me up during the surgery because the doc thought I was having a seizure. They'd given me dipenhydramine. - well, that will do it! I made the surgeon go over...

Involuntary leg movements & knee surgery

Have any of you had knee surgery and been concerned about involuntary leg movements during the surgery? I am scheduled for a laproscopic surgery for a meniscus tear and generally do not have leg movements that are involuntary during the day. Mine are mostly at night. I was just wondering if I should...

Re: Tramadol vs oxycodone

I was having memory issues with lyrica and I was having to increase the dosage every couple of months for it to stay effective. I was on 300mg. It would work until about 3am and then I would be up. Oxycodone seems to be more stimulating than tramadol, but the tramadol dosage was only effective until...

Tramadol vs oxycodone

To get off lyrica, my dr switched me to mirapex and tramadol while I taper off lyrica. Tramadol is taken twice....50 mg at 6 and 50 mg right before bed. Mirapex is 25mg at 6, 25mg at 8, 25 mg right before bed. I reduced lyrica to 100 mg already. The problem was I wasn't staying asleep. After 4 hours...

Re: augmentation with lyrica?

Thanks for the responses. I am on an iron supplement and my iron levels are good currently. I agree with the previous poster. Lyrica does not work well on its own. My doctor has added 1/2 a milligram of Klonopin nightly with the 300 mg of Lyrica....it has been working. I have taken it for about a mo...

Re: Good Doc??

However, I don't feel good about this drug after reading info. So, I would like to find another doctor. Can anyone help?? Blessings to ...

Re: New member - 8 year old son diagnosed at 6 with RLS/PLMD

Have any of you with children with rls considered the glutamate connection to effect them? I have it and am highly affected by it. It is in our diet in so many forms. A good test would be to let them eat a serving of Doritos. If you notice a huge increase in movement by them, then they may be affect...

augmentation with lyrica?

Maybe I did not understand augmentation but can you have augmentation with Lyrica? My doctor had me on low dosages and would up the dosage every three or four months by 50 mg until I began taking 300mg. When I jumped from 200 to 300 mg it helped for about 6 days. After that, it seemed my symptoms gr...
