medication

Hi, I've read a few posts and I'm trying to sort things out. As I said in before clonazepam may help some but in my case they had me on 2.5 mgs per day which is too much of a price to pay but if it works for you at a low dosage then go for it but again it is very addictive. I've started mirapex at 0...

mirapex

thanks for the info.

Yes he started me on 0.125 at 5 days interval and then 0.5 steady. So I think that is what you felt good at.

Thanks

RLS & klonopin

I have been on klonopin for years for MS and it is ver addictive. See benzo.org.uk.
I was a 2.5 mgs per day and 6 years after I'm at 0,625 mg abd believe me it was not all happy days.

So if you have RLS go to meds like Mirapex.

Clonazepam

I've been on it for quite a while and it was used before for RLS but its the wrong stuff. Get off it because it is very addictive. To find out go to benzo.org.uk and you will see the horror stories.
