Re: ZOLOFT started my RLS and Cymbalta helped some

I don't think I will continue the Mirapex or take any DA with all the stuff I read with augmentation etc. I know for certain that I have a sleep disorder probably exasperated by the withdrawal from Cymbalta. At the moment I am trying my best to somehow get my sleep some routine. I have some experien...

Re: ZOLOFT started my RLS and Cymbalta helped some

Well to update you guys, I just went to a new Dr who is a neurologist specialising in sleep disorders and rls. He prescribed Mirapex and also wrote a ferritin (iron) blood test. Just took the first dose of Mirapex tonight , got a initial throbbing headache that lessened after a few hours . Other the...

Re: ZOLOFT started my RLS and Cymbalta helped some

Yeah it feels like a double edged sword right now, my brain has a really hard time just calming down to fall asleep and the rls is evident and really unstable. Some days it is calm enough but my brain can't grasp that connection to shutdown. Another interesting point in my case is that 80% of RLS is...

Re: ZOLOFT started my RLS and Cymbalta helped some

The response from your Dr is unfortunate. Even when your fatty liver is caused by diet, the Cymbalta would pose significant & relevant additional risks. So as long as there are less riskier alternatives available, not using Cymbalta anymore seems like a smart move in my eyes. Iron: given the fact t...

Re: ZOLOFT started my RLS and Cymbalta helped some

That the doc dismissed the iron is problematic for me. I get not being willing to do to an infusion immediately or to suggest oral iron, but to not take a test? I put myself through years of misery not wanting to take medications. I changed my diet, I worked out, I slept in a separate bed from my p...

Re: ZOLOFT started my RLS and Cymbalta helped some

Yes you are right, I also checked that cymbalta does indeed cause hepatotoxicity. However when I posed this to my Dr he actually pushed it aside and said my fatty liver was caused by diet. I forget to mention I went to a neurologist last week and put all my concerns, just wanted a fresh take. I sugg...

Re: ZOLOFT started my RLS and Cymbalta helped some

Ata, QyX sounds reasonable to me. Cymbalta is probably safer than the usual RLS drugs, especially the dopamine agonists. Why not restart the Cymbalta? I would but I am always striving to be healthy and work around the reliance on an external source to maintain my well being. And generally want to g...

Re: ZOLOFT started my RLS and Cymbalta helped some

So, why don't start taking the Cymbalta again? That sounds like the easiest solution. Did you have any insomnia during the time you took Cymbalta? Insomnia is a common withdrawal symptom when stopping Cymbalta. Therefore you could try temporary treatment with Benzodiazepines (Clonazepam, Diazepam) ...

ZOLOFT started my RLS and Cymbalta helped some

I started having rls symptoms around the age of 34, I was taking Zoloft at the time for mild depression. I was under high stress/anxiety at work topped up with relationship and financial stress. And to add to the mix I was drinking a lot of coffee which I feel really depleted my body of important nu...

Re: Orgasm as treatment and/or cause

In my case masterbating/orgasm makes my rls symptoms worse

Re: A Natural RLS Remedy that will work for EVERYONE

I just check your website, could you outline the amounts needed to be taken and how long before you see results ? Thanks
