Re: Attempting to get off Ropinirole - again

There I was, as is my usual, crossing many bridges down the road that often never need crossed. I spoke with an Admin member of staff at my Medical Practice, explained my reasons for not to want to move and to ask if there was room for negotiation. For ease I will call her AM (Admin Member). AM said...

Re: Attempting to get off Ropinirole - again

Yesterday I received a letter from my Health Centre who I have been with for 45 years. The last 15 years I have lived outside their catchment area but they agreed to keep me registered. The catchment area is 6.5 miles. I am 12 miles distant. I have always preferred to stay with these doctors with wh...

Generally speaking, I'm happy to say the actual nighttimes have been improved since starting the Lyrica. I've ordered my next prescription at the same 150mg x 2 dosage...

Re: Describe your RLS symptoms

So difficult for me to describe the symptoms, no words seem to be accurate enough to adequately describe the torture.

Re: What Relationships?

wishful - There are many triggers for rls symptoms and alcohol is one such trigger. So your champagne and red wine could well be the culprit. And yes, a bad night after a quiet evening. Sometimes there appears to be no reasoning as to when symptoms play up more. Do bear in mind that, tobacco, sugar,...
