the type of pain is really important.

I'm sorry you're having problems. I knew my RLS was taking a turn for the worse when my arms started getting involved. I didn't have any luck on Diazapam. My RLS med of choice is Klonopin. Before my surgery's they put me on the valium,took away the Klonopin and it was pretty bad. talk to your new Dr...

Dr put me on Wellbutrin to quit smoking.
I went crazy. I mean crying, "the sky is falling" everything.
I even went off of it and tried half of the dose and just as i was back to my normal happy self the "sky is falling" appeared again.

I'll never do that med again.

It was a combination of the 2. After that i could no longer take Imipramine which was a lifesaver for me. It...

My insurance co. wanted to charge me $150 a month for oxygen so i went on eBay and bought a o2 concentrator for only $400. Too bad they've done away with selling them..It paid for itself in no time!
