Re: New guy

I'm not an expert so it may be BS. But I read that somewhere. I read to not take them together because they both effect serotonin levels and increase the possibility of siezures and because of their effects on serotonin can have antidepressant qualities. Again...i'm not expert so don't quote me on t...

Re: New guy

I called and got a refill of gabapentin today. I will give it another chance. Kratom is my new best friend. I just wish it lasted longer than 2 or 3 hrs. I'm not good at waking up and going back to sleep. Maybe i will switch back and forth between Kratom and Tramadol. Might help delay any tolerance ...

Re: 15 years is way too long

Sounds like you have been going thu what i am going thu everyday for quite some time. My hats off to you and others that have found the strength to do it day in and day out. I feel like a whimpering baby for even complaining.

Re: New guy

I think it was 100 mg. It was a capsule so i couldn't cut it in half. I suppose i could of dumped part of it out tho. Unfortunately i threw them away. But im sure i can refill it. I may try it again. I thought that was a bad experience at the time. But after 4 nites of practically no sleep..i realiz...

Re: New guy

Thanks everyone for the replies. It wasn't so much that the gabapentin didn't work as it was the side effects. I had the smallest dose possible and it just made me feel really weird(more than normal). I got to reading how much most people take to do any good and thought to myself...there's no way i ...

Re: 15 years is way too long

Anyway...thanks for the feedback from everyone. I find myself being short and impatient the last couple days. I don't like being that way.

Re: 15 years is way too long

I'm a little ticked at my dr at the moment. I called and talked to his nurse today to explain that i had to get off ropinirol because it just wasnt working anymore and needed to see the Dr to figure out what to try next. His answer was that he would make an appointment with a neurologist if i wanted...

Re: 15 years is way too long

I assume you have tried Kratom. It didn't work the best for me for opioid withdrawal when i found that tramadol is indeed addictive( After daily use for years it is anyway). But i found that maeng da( which is stimulating) works well during daytime and early eve for crawlies. But it wont touch the l...

Re: 15 years is way too long

Anytime i get sleepy (even if its in the middle of the day) i can't sit or lay down without getting the crawlies. But for some reason if its daytime its a lot easier to get things under control. Sometime as easy as getting up and walking around for awhile. I have to do that at work in the afternoon ...

Re: 15 years is way too long

What i don't quite understand is even tho i am sleep deprived during the day. I can control my symptoms easily. Last night i had taken some kratom around 10 pm and everything was going well even tho i was very tired. I was just starting to get my hopes up that maybe i would sleep. Then around midnig...

15 years is way too long

I have been on ropinirol for at least 15 years. After reading the info on this site i realized that i needed to get off this stuff. Finally got up the courage last night. All i can say is wow. Even with opioids i only managed 2 hours sleep last night and tonight is even worse. My legs were even driv...

New guy

Hi everyone..Been visiting this site off and on for a couple years i guess. All i can say is thank god this place is here. I have gained a wealth of information about this terrible condition that most people (including dr's) just think is a uncomfortable sensation. Like most i started on ropinirole ...
