Re: Neupro patch map

I switched to Neupro a few days ago from my off-on use of pramipexole. My doc has added a few meds re. hypothyroid and fibro and between the new meds and winter, the rhinitis is terrible. Pramipexole has ALWAYS caused swelling of my nasal passages - but now I cannot breathe at night. I had mild symp...

WELCOME TO WKG

Monday, 18 of March -

Welcome to WKG, who cannot remember life without RLS. As with many of us, sleep and sleeping arrangements have been impacted.


We can all relate to that! If you want, poke around yourself, or introduce yourself by starting a new post. Either way, welcome.

Re: Gabapenten used thru the night

Well, the problem with gabapentin is that different people metabolize gabapentin much faster or slower than others. Most drugs have a fairly predictable metabolism rate. Not so with gabapentin. I am very sensitive to it. 150 mg for me is a tolerable dose, 300 mg turns me into a zombie. There are fo...

Re: Paradoxical reaction on gabapentin?

Sorry, leggo - was on vacation last week and not checking in often. This week I am paying as I have to get about 40 hours of work done for my classes in the next two to three days, lol.

Hope the taper helps.

Re: Orgasm as treatment and/or cause

This is one of the complexities with the US system regarding pharma development. Lots of difficulties involved. It is one of the reasons that docs often use off-label options for things where the patent is expired; highly unlikely anyone will run a study for something that is off-patent, even when m...

Re: Neupro patch map

I am thinking about what the picture on the Neupro materials looks like...don't they show only shoulders, upper arms, and thighs in the front? I don't think any part of the chest is shown as a possible spot. Could it be that it is not absorbed as well from there? So sorry you are suffering tonight :...

Re: Orgasm as treatment and/or cause

Thanks for the replies! I'm suggesting that, by the same mechanism that heroine addicts get RLS, a person who has too many orgasms could get RLS. Or by the same mechanism ("augmentation") that dopamine drug users worsen their RLS. All three are cases of heightened dopamine in the brain. T...

I just looked at my tests. He orders ferritin, total iron, iron binding capacity, and % saturation.

Re: new ideas for RLS

Hormones seem to be integral to this and seems we really do not have an answer for that, yet.

Re: Orgasm as treatment and/or cause

In some ways, I am surprised how OFTEN we talk about it here! There are taboos on it - that we do means a lot of folks have figured it out and want to share, lol. And some would say they were private and they just didn't want to talk about it. But, as noted earlier, for many of us it isn't a perfect...

Re: Hyland's Restful Legs

It isn't really a medication. It is homeopathic and because they are diluted to such an extent, I cannot see it harming anyone. Over 1800 studies show that homeopathy doesn't work, however. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/1800-studies-later-scientists-conclude-homeopathy-doesnt-work-180954...

Re: Augmentation again (of course)

This is pretty typical - the doctor did not test your serum ferritin (happened to me, too, even after I said that is what I needed). That is the one you need.
