mendel, you might want to look in the Pharmacuetical Therapies section - here's one but I bet there are more. There is a pretty good search function on the site. http://www.restlesslegs.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=91 This post in General Topics startedabout pain, but ended up being about withdrawal f...

Becki, the food elimination is easier than it sounds. Mu sister and I made excuses for weeks before we did it. We thought we'd only give up a couple things at a time, then we thought we'd do half. In the end, we just went out and bought replacements for dairy and wheat, used no-sugar-added jam and a...

Becki, if I wrote about my experience with the dopamine agonists along with 1000 other users, you'd think I'd taken a different drug! At low dosages, this drug destroyed my life in a way, yet it helps the vast majority of RLS users. If you tried it two separate times with the same results, IMHO I wo...

Hi Scared Mom, I can tell how scared you are. Just so you know, we always check the posts - you can safely post just once and we'll find it! We're good at that :) . Since this is all volunteer, sometimes it may take a few hours before someone stops by, though, to see it. But there are a core of very...

Thanks Bryan and Foundation; Welcome Newcomers

Thank you for managing to get the board back up and get the saved messages. We appreciate taking your time to do this on the weekend. This board is one of the most active RLS boards and has come to mean a lot to many people, especially during the times when RLS is uncontrolled and a major problem. T...

Joelle, there have been several discussions about arms and RLS. Not sure where, but maybe General Topics? Short answer - yes and some people have is all over. If you search on Arms in the subject, I'm sure you'll find some of the past threads. Welcome to the board! Glad you have a name for this - it...

Meagan, I take methadone. Studies show that it can be taken for RLS with much lower risk of tolerance, dependence and addiction. If she only takes it at night, shouldn't be a problem. Some progressive doctors think that taking a 'drug holiday' from potentially problematice drugs can prevent problems...

Sara, well put. I also have mixed feelings about this. I do believe the commercials are US nationwide. People on at least three different message boards, including ours, posted that they saw the commercials, and they have all been from different parts of the US. I am so grateful that more people now...

Oh, to scare you a little more 8) , most doctors DO NOT believe that people have trouble stopping the benzo devils. And, a lot of people don't. Three doctors pooh-poohed me when I told them the hell I was going through. So, Dr Cutie may not think it's a big deal to stop them. And, I'll hold out hope...

Wow, Laurie, you've figured out a lot by yourself. You're right about smoking pot, opioids and anticonvulsants (like Neurontin); they all help RLS. And, you're right about Elavil - it makes it worse for most people. It's an older antidepressant and most ADs make RLS worse (most, but not always). Doe...

Hi Sara, hope the vacation was good. I think that the other post was in Non-pharm section. Try this one and see if this is it.
