Hi Suz and welcome to this site. I am sorry for what you are going through. I also have painful rls and have had it for over 20 yrs and can certainly relate to rocking back and forth. In fact when they are really bad I sit on the edge of my bed and swing my legs back forth as hard and fast as I can ...

If not I would suggest he finds a dr that has knowledge of rls. We cannot tell you what he should take as we are not drs but can offer alot of support. Y...

Re: Easy Question - What Works For You for RLS?

I am on a quest to find the right meds for me to take for my RLS. I was taking Requip and thought it worked okay. Then the generic came out and I don't feel it worked as well. Doc won't let me take Vicodin (understandable) and prescribed me Sinemet. I've not read good things about it. Last night I ...

Ann I am sure that you are feeling better; however I would still see the dr especially since your neck is still a little bit sore. These things can sneak up on you without any warning. This guys insurance company wanted me to settle within three (3) months which I did not. It took over a year to hav...

Oh Ann I am so sorry to hear about car accident. I know what it is like to be hit from behind. Hubby and I were waiting for a light when a drunk driver hit us going 45 mph (never stopped we were his brakes) and totaled our car and I was seeing a dr for over a year for my neck. Please go see a dr and...

Hi Domesticflowergirl and welcome to this group. I am sorry that you are having such a rough time with your rls. That has got to be rough with no job and insurance. I would see if your dr is willing to work with you and find out what it would cost for the generic for Requip. You may want to ask if h...

Hi Cyn and welcome to this group. How long have you been on Requip? You mentioned that you are getting the symptoms more frequently. You may be augmenting (that is having rls anytime of the day or night and is getting worse). On this forum please read New to RLS as there is some excellent info there...

I tried .5mg and 1mg of Clonazapam without success. I don’t want to go any higher in dose because I’m afraid of having “medicine head” in the morning. However, .5mg of Clonazapam with 2mg of Requip works very well. The results are much more predictable than with Requip by itself. Mixing drugs was n...

Per the clonazapam, I know I am a littlle more skeptical than most, but I take Dr B to heart when he says there are better alternatives. Both books that he co-wrote and rlshelp.org, where he writes, are invaluable to me for finding out a starting point for treatment and what to do with things like ...

Charlene, Thanks for responding to my letter so quickly. I appreciate all the good information and links you gave me. I was browsing the RLS site the other night and came across an audio clip from a call in show with a Dr. Mark J. Buchfuhrer. This is where I learned the term “augmentation”. I mentio...

Hi Ed I was just reading our post and I am also on clonazapem. I was on 1mg and my dr put me down to .75mg. This is one med that you go down very slowly. I hope that you do not mind me putting my 2cents worth in but have been there. I would suggest that you go down to .75mg for a while and see how t...
