Re: when did pharmacist become judge and jury

I had the same thing happen to me with methadone, buprenorphine, and hydromorphone. The response was, "Well, I've never heard of this!" Each time at first I thought they weren't going to give them to me but luckily they eventually did. It took a lot of persuading on my part. Her attitude a...

Re: How to be a guinea pig?

I did 40 sessions of TMS for treatment resistant depression but the psychiatrist said it might help RLS too. I regularly had to get up from the chair during treatments because of RLS. Unfortunately, in the end it helped with neither the RLS or depression. The only thing it did was make my anxiety sk...

Re: How do you hold down a job?

Hi everyone. I had another appointment with Dr. B and he switched me to buprenorphine. It works great for stopping my symptoms and allowing me to sleep but just like with methadone and hydromorphone, I wake up feeling like death and spend the rest of the day exhausted and in a haze, even with a good...

Re: How do you hold down a job?

Thank you everyone for your kind words. I saw Dr.B last month and have another appointment a week from today. He switched me from Tramadol to methadone. The Tramadol was definitely causing augmentation. The methadone worked well for sleep but left me beyond exhausted the next day. I talked to him ov...

How do you hold down a job?

I haven't worked in over a year. It's killing me mentally. My work was one of the only things that kept me grounded and provided me with much needed structure and social interaction, not to mention money. My biggest fear has come to pass which is not being able to support myself. I can't pull my own...

Sequential compression device/air leg massager

I bought a pair of leg massagers on Amazon about a month ago. I think they are definitely worth it. I was able to take a nap using them, which is something I haven't be able to do for years without medication. However, when it's really bad they kind of make it worse, especially if I use the highest ...

Help!

I am very grateful for this board and the rls site. Thank you RustSmith for the nice welcome. I definitely feel less alone. RLS is lonely and insidious. The RLS started circa 2003. The year 2005 was the first time I sought help. I went to a primary care doc and was prescribed Requip which did absolu...
