Hi, I've been on symvastatin for about 6 months, and on requip for about 5 months. Haven't noticed anything from the statins, in particular.

Hi Debs, just a thought - and a little bit of guidance needed. My rls kicks in at about 2 pm when I am in work and at my desk. If I am at home it kicks in when I sit down to watch a movie etc. So can I use this oil whenever I want, and as often as I want, i.e. starting at lunchtime and thru to the e...

Debs, I agree, I am sick of medication.
And all my recent Bloods etc. all read within the normal ranges. !!
It would be great to be rid of it all.
I'll let you know.

Like you Aff, I am now waiting the oil with anticipation.
Debs said she went straight to the oil from requip, without weaning herself off requip. Sounds extreme... Not quite sure which way to approach it. A bit reluctant about stopping the requip cold turkey!!!

Hi Debs and JBCole You are both having such good results with this oil, and I am awaiting its delivery, so I just wanted to ask, when did you stop the requip. i.e. did you stop requip immediately you started to use the oil, did you wean yourself off the requip first, or did you use the requip and th...

Hi debs, I have just ordered restless legs oil from the web site so fingers crossed and here's hoping. Just to let folk know that shipping to the UK is another $15, but hey if it works, then it is well spent. It is not expensive anyway. So here's to seeing how long it takes to get here, and looking ...
