Good for you,i say whatever it takes. I've had (according now to the experts) RLS,PLMD since i was a kid. I didn't know all of my sleepwalking and running was b/c of this. I also think that sometimes we think the medicine quits working when in reality we've hit this terrible episode in RLS,like a fl...

Hi, i've been on Klonopin for at least 15 years. .I also used to worry about addiction but not anymore.
Nothing equals a good nights sleep in my honest opinion.
I personally won't ever go trough that time of no sleep again if i can help it.
good luck!

I used to stretch to the point where i would have charlie horses.
My main problem now is during the day sometimes it feels like a bug crawing under my pants,it's so real that even though it's cold out as soon as i get home i switch over to shorts. It's always right at my knee and feels so real.

I say we need to do whatever it takes to get through the night..Fear of addiction was a biggie for me but no more..Unless someone has walked in my shoes for as long as I have then they can't judge me,well they can try but it doesn't matter. I'm fullfilling a long time dream,doing the foster care..I'...
