Just to touch on the subject of shaving and the hair 'growing in', I found that using an electric razor rather than a wet razer got over this difficulty for me. Betty

I'd be really, really interested to hear if the oil works for you.
Good Luck, Betty

Hi Deb and Ray. Just to make it clear to anyone else following this thread, When I started using the oil, I did not stop my requip, I just reduced it from 2mg to 1.5 mg. But the oil did not compensate for the .5mg difference. Indeed the .5mg difference drop in dosage was enough to send me crazy with...

Yes, I could try for the refund, tho I doubt they would refund the $15 original delivery charge to UK. And of course they probably wouldn't refund what I presume would be $15 (equivalent) postage to return it to the US. i.e. it would cost me $15 to return the bottle to get a refund of $15 !!! So, to...

Hi Debs, I got the oil, about 9 days ago. I started to use it immediately, first of all in the early afternoon to combat my afternoon 'at the desk twitches', however it doesn't appear to make any difference and I still spend a couple of hours each afternoon 'standing'. As for the evenings/night-time...

Glad something helped. Yes, I would also get a little bit of tiredness, but I'm happy to put up with it, if other things 'fall into place' a bit better.

Good luck. Betty

Thankyou Ann, tho I reckon I am still uneducated with regards to Methadone and in my ignorance still think of it as the alternative to heroin or some such. Tho I know the doses are completely different. This is what we (me) have to get over and realise that drugs (prescribed) are indeed now a part o...

Jim, I take requip 2mg and found the best working method is to take half a tablet at around 7pm and the other half at about 9pm. It helps cut the nausea, helps with the early evening symptoms, and gets going before the twitching starts. I do have the twitches in the afternoon when I am at work but t...

Thankyou Ann, I'll discuss the possibility of taking an opioid while trying to reduce, with the neuro. Are you willing to tell me what you are actually taking as medication at the moment if you are not on requip/miripex etc. If I recall from the threads correctly, I think maybe an opioid it all you ...

Ta, I read up on the Klonopin and thought it was pretty scary. but suppose they all are. Difficulty is that this neuro I am seeing is a private appt, i.e. a one off at a cost of £150 ($300) for a half hour, for an opinion, I wont get to see him again, unless under our health service which has very l...

Thanks Corrie Last night in desperation, I forgot about reducing the dose, took my prescribed 2mg requip, plus as a sleeping aid 6mg diazepam. I had a fabulous night's sleep (prob from built up exhaustian as well) slept from 10 pm to 7 am. The alarm woke me. I will see neuro. Then I may try reducing...

Thanks Micked, I've got a private appt with a Consultant Neurologist on 5 May, two and a half weeks away, a Saturday so I don't need time off work. It will cost £150 ($300) for a half hour consultation. It remains to be seen if this will be worth while. In the meantime I reckon I will tonight take a...

Thanks for your quick comment. It helps to hear from someone who knows 'what you mean', I do have some codeine 15mg, just a few, which I had to plead for a couple of months ago for a long air journey. I also have codydramol (don't know what you call it in US) but it is paracaetamol with 8mg codeine....
