Mirapex dose

I am on 1.5 mg of mirapex a night and 1 mg of clonazapam and have had no obvious side effects over the 3 years I have been on it. The doctor added the clonazapam to increase the effect of the mirapex.

maybe

I had been wondering about the Jello for a while. I had heard that mentioned on another website, but have not checked to see if there is a linkage. I will give that a try and see how it works. I have jello quite often as an evening snack, so will start tracking the change in RLS on jello nights. By ...

re:twin beds

My doctor suggested that for me. With my current meds and alternative therapies, the RLS is not noticible to my wife anymore, but I still am in a light sleep most of the night, so my wifes movements and snoring tend to wake me easily. The only problem for me is we don't have an extra bedroom to put ...

mirapex and cloazepam

After running through all the meds from lepodova to psychoactive drugs and not get any relief, my doctor put me on mirapex about 2 hours before bedtime, and then 1mg of clonazapam at bedtime. The combination has been effective for about 5 good hours of sleep. It has been working for about 3 years now.

Hey, this works!!

I've read the replies, and have tried a variation of things. I have very sensitive skin, so maybe my results would not work for some. I tried a pair of surgical hose (found at a thrift store, they are too expensive for me), a nylon type body shaper that only went from the waist to the knees (It look...

Giving it a try!!

I think I have enough feedback to give this a try. I will keep you posted on the "Men in Tights" experiment. Maybe Joe Namath had a good idea when he introduced men's pantyhose in the 70's. He was just a little ahead of the times. LOL!!!! It's often the odd thing that works. Maybe this is a revoluti...

wearing pantyhose at night?

This seems like an odd therapy, but someone mentioned to me that they wear thi-hi stockings or pantyhose at night to relieve the symptoms. She said she found during the day when she was not wearing pantyhose, the symptoms were worse during long periods of sitting then when she wore them. To see if i...
