Take care!

I'm flat out keepin up with the research as it is.

Thanks for pointing this one out Zach. When I manage to get my printer to play nice, i'll print this one out.

I will be lobbying hard to get off the codeine and onto tramadol when I see my specialist in a few weeks time.

Take care

..... If the amit-whatsit works for you, then by all means, take it. Especially if you're sure that it doesn't aggravate your RLS. I've heard of others who take it as well, and don't have a problem with it. I take Lexapro or Effexor (jury's still out on which I prefer) and I know that they don't bo...
