LDN for RLS (while coming off Tramadol)

Hi all, My doctor has prescribed LDN for my RLS, he believes that it will work very well and help get me off the Tramadol once and for all, has anyone tried LDN for their RLS, and if so how did it go? Another question is this, my doctor recommended quitting the tramadol the same day I begin the LDN,...

Re: RLS caused by bacteria in the GUT??

I think it' s something to look into, right now I am researching the possiblities of SIBO being related to causing RLS

Re: Requip making my symptoms worse :-(

Requip made my symptoms much worse. I had to quit taking it.

RLS caused by bacteria in the GUT??

This is HUGE news for me. As I was diagnosed with IBS when I was 18 years old. I totally believe that RLS is a gut issue, that may explain why I never had RLS when I was on antibiotics!

Well, relief is about all I can say, I was getting much better relief with methadone, but methadone destroyed my entire endocrine system and I will never take that stuff again. Right now I hope to get on natural alternatives, one day.

HI there !! Long time no talk! How are you?

My tramadol dose varies greatly. Some nights I take only 50, other nights I take 100 and other nights I take 150. On average though I take 100mg.

I'm back !! - It's Mia - my treatment is Tramadol now.

I haven't been on here in like a year! But wanted to update everyone that I finally was able to get off the methadone and have been on Tramadol (Ultram) ever since. So far so good -- but I would love to take NOTHING for my RLS. I am going to try going gluten free, sugar free and casein free and see ...

Okay, thanks Zach for all that great information. I must admit that I want to take the Ultram every night for the bad RLS that I am having lately, but I am fearful of ending up "dependent" on the Ultram. And you are right, I am not "addicted" to the Methadone whatsoever, I don't ...

Zach, thanks for your long response. I appreciate your opinions about Methadone, as I see that you feel very strongly about it (as I once did). I still believe that Methadone is a bad drug though, based on my own experiences with it and based on the hundreds of others that I have read about online w...

TS - you are awesome, thanks so much for your support!! Wow, this methadone is some serious stuff, had I known then what I know now, I would have never ever taken this stuff.
Thanks for the wonderful support you have given me.

Okay now I am having anxiety and panic attacks, all night last night and all day today, I got 30 mins of sleep last night - that was it. CAn someone tell me if panic attacks and anxiety are relieved by Ultram and Trazedone? That is what I have to get on tonight, I cannot take another day of this crap!

No, the withdrawals that you speak of are heroin, not methadone. I've watched someone come off of heroin, horrible stuff as well. Equally bad in my opinion. With opitate withdrawals the symptoms change with each day that you are off the drug, the depression may not hit you until day 4 or day 5 and t...

I'm sorry, maybe my brain is REALLY OFF right now in left field due to my current state of detoxing from methadone, but page 15 with RLJames certainly describes severe withdrawals from the methadone, punch oneself, which I have been doing for two days now in my arms and pain (when pain never existed...

Oh the HOT baths, I take many of them per day now, they are the only way to relieve the pain and cramping. I get 5 of them per day or more, but mainly in the middle of the night while others are sleeping, that is when it hurts the most. I will also need to get the immodium AD, I never knew that comi...
