Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

I'm finding it hard to locate much that supports CBD in the RLS treatment. Fortunately I don't seem to be troubled with anxiety or panic attacks.

Re: Riding the Big One (RLS 24/7, Hanging Ten)

Indeed EeFall, it's really just a way of life for me now. There seems to be nothing in the 'sleep med range' that will work. Haven't tried anything in the herbal range, everything except CBD oil is illegal here and the oil on its own doesn't appear to be a big deal for sleep. So I 'wander lonely as ...

Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

With regard to CBD I've been making enquiries about the CBD Oil. Here in UK the CBD Oil is legal but not the THC. As far as I can gather the CBD Oil doesn't do much for the RLS symptoms on its own.
I believe CBD tincture is a liquid that contains a small amount of hemp infusion.

Re: Medical Marijuana

Anything I've read on CBD oil for RLS seems to lean towards needing a small trace of THC for symptoms relief.

I don't sleep either, my medications being of the more tradional type.

Re: Training Brain to Release Dopamine earlier

You have nothing to lose by trying it out and if you do, we'd be most grateful if you kept us informed of how it worked for you.

Re: TRAZODONE

I read this article saying that Trazodone was seen to help with insomnia for the first two weeks of treatment but it hasn't been checked for the treatment of chronic insomia, i.e. in the long term. Several side effects to be aware of. https://www.consumerreports.org/insomnia/trazodone-for-insomnia-s...

Re: Riding the Big One (RLS 24/7, Hanging Ten)

Oh !! what happy happy joy indeed !! 7 hours sleep. I know that I haven't slept longer than 2 hours at a time, often had no sleep, and never had more that 5 hours fragmented sleep in at least 21 years. I can accurately date at least that far back in my sleep pattern because of a particular event. In...

:thumbup: Yankiwi - That's actually a nice idea, and write to the Practice as opposed to directly to Dr D.

A doctor knew about Ferritin !!

Yesterday I had a GP appointment. I felt that a medication prescribed for blood pressure was giving an unwanted side effect and I was asking for a change of medication. Didn't need to see any particular doctor in the practice. We are able to make our appointments on line. Dr D was the only doctor wi...

Re: Latest on TENS Unit Use for Nighttime Symptoms

Now that you are back on track I hope it doesn't take long until all is as good as it can be.

If nothing else, you have discovered how it is without using your TENS.

Re: Changing my diet may have solved my RLS

suttmes69xx ----- I note you take Sinemet, just be aware that Sinemet is a drug that is very often the cause of augmentation in RLS especially if taken on a regular basis. Augmentation is a phenomenon in which the medication leads to a worsening of symptoms beyond the level of severity that was expe...
