The ferritin measure is the one related to taking the DAs - you want it at least 50 and preferable 100 before you take the DAs. This is a measure of the iron stored in your body. Many of us are low in this area. You can be low in both areas, though, which can compound things.
What other things are you taking - for anything? Vitamins, OTC drugs, alcohol, anything at all.....sometimes these things can cause problems. Any other health conditions - celiac, diabetes, pregnancy and many more things can contribute to worsened WED.

I'm in the beginning of my treatment. So, we'll see if this medication works. I really don't want to take a narcotic all of the time. I read in the pamphlet that comes with the mirapex that certain narcotics and anti depressant and anti anxiety medications can make it worse. I have tramadol at home. So... can you take mirapex and tramadol at the same time. For instance... both before bed?
