Did't really help my RLS, contrbuted to memory loss and loosing my job. Good luck I went off lyrica because it definitely caused me to eat more than usual, made me feel...

Re: question - any other opiate better?

I was also able to get off of a lot of incidental medication that all together didn't near equaling the results I get from methadone. But it makes me sleep considerably more. It's the only drawback.

Re: WED and summer

I've never noticed that myself. I know that I am more active physically in the summer and physical activity definitely increases my WED.

Re: Opiates necessary for DA withdrawal....?

I just got off my roprinole (sp) and I took 1-2 Mgs per day. Dr b noted that at 1 mg per day it was a relatively low dose. Hope that helps

Re: Is Requip making me worse?

Generally tramadol works really well but for coming off requip you will probably need something to kick WEDs butt!

Re: Is Requip making me worse?

Yes you really want a dr helping you. I could have never gotten off my requip without fairly strong opiates. Tramadol definitely would not have done it. Imagine Wed on steroids when getting off requip. And did you say "nap? Hahahaha! Sorry, just seems like a funny notion. Although since I've be...

Re: Is Requip making me worse?

Dr b Also reminded me when I saw him last that he wrote a concise manual for clinicians on how to treat WED. That may come in handy on future visits. You can get it through amazon.

My best sleep happens.....

So my deepest and most satisfying sleep happens from 5am-10:30am. The problem is that I have to get up for work at 7am. It has become increasingly difficult to rouse myself from that deep slumber. Is there any way to adjust my own circadian rhythm? Is this typical for our population? The general pop...

Re: Piggybacking

I do something between "artistic" and technical......I play the "draw me" game with random (and sometimes perverted!) opponents on my iPhone!! It's quite entertaining.
