My husband found a web site that sells "chilling mix" and out of desperation for me and my rls, ordered some for me to try. Like the Kava Kava, it seems to make me relax and doesn't always take away the rls, but like you, I just don't care as much it's bothering me. Very similar to a pot high, but t...

It's been 10 days since you posted, Bjorn, just wondering how it is going for you? It took me 3 weeks of nearly no sleep to stop after the augmentation but then had 2 weeks of NO RLS SYMPTOMS at all ~ day or night. I am sleeping most nights now and that is such a blessing.

Thought I'd give it another try...says I need to download JAVA which I click on but nothing happens. But then, I've had to log in twice already due to our dial up cutting out (the drawback to living in the hills is we only have s-l-o-w-dial-up) :)

Hey Jennifer, I was taking Concerta ER before I ever started on any meds for rls ~ weird thing was the Concerta seemed to help the rls daytime symptoms for quite some time as well. I still take the Concerta (hate having to go each month just for a script) along with all the rls meds and both my MD a...

Hey Mark, are you referring to the chat room or here...I can never log on to the rls chat room for some reason :( I live in the foothills of southwestern VA so maybe it's the hills (sounds better than my lack of computer skills!)

alternating drugs

Thanks, Bjorn for your questions and the responses~I've been wondering the same things about changing up meds to keep away from augmentation. After 2 horrid experiences with augmentation (once on sinamet and recently Mirapex) I don't want to go there again. I now experience rls 24/7 most days and li...

Like others, I started out on .125 and soon went to .25 mirapex and had terrible night sweats. I'm getting to the age to expect power surges (hot flashes) but no other symptoms of that yet...I wasn't sure if it was due to the Mirapex or Ultram though. Wasn't long before the Mirapex augmented so watc...

Maybe I'm just touchy with meds, but am having issues with all the above mentioned sleep aids. Ambien doesn't work long enough - 3-4 hours and I'm up again; Ativan (1 mg) make my kinda psychotic acting but only tried it once; Klonopin's half-life is proving true - took one Fri and two Sat night and ...

Thanks for the info Josh, No neurotin yet. Klonopin has been the most recent but I can't shake the fog that remains days after. I am so tired of all this trial and error stuff. No sleep for 3 weeks then with klonopin I sleep - and sleep - and sleep...took two mg. on Saturday night and still can't sh...

I was surprised to see Ultram on this list. After augmention with Sinamet and now Mirapax, I've continued with the ultram during the day thinking I was safe with it. Question now is, after being off the dopamine agonists for over 3 weeks now, when is it (if ever) safe to try them again? The Klonopin...

Y'all have said it best what stays in my heart always with this place to come for comfort and understanding~ it's not about measuring each one against the other but just being there for one another in good days/nights and bad. No disease treats or reacts to anyone exactly the same but it is still a ...

:cry: Okay, Zach, you scared me with the darvaset post...I have no idea what is "too much" so I've switched back to ultram throughout the day (is there too much of this one?) the only taking the darvaset late at night when I still can't stop the pain to lay down (like now...3:25 am and still kicking...

Oh Lynne, you are after my heart! I drive 30 minutes from home at least twice weekly to buy Sonic ice by the bag! The only kind of ice to crunch! I really had no clue my ice cravings may tie into an iron deficiency...will check with dr in case...in the mean time, I might try some liver just before i...

Lynne, am I understanding that long term lack of sleep breaks down your body so that it affects the consumption of iron?
