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...

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...

QUALITY CENTERS: HOW DOES IT WORK

I've noticed the quality centers are scattered throughout the US and for me, at least, are all located out of state. How does it work once you make an appt with one of their drs? For example, I've exhausted all the normal meds subscribed for RLS and none of my drs are wiling to give opioids, not tha...
