Active Ingredients: Gabapentin
I'm afraid of becoming benzodiazepine dependent.
I also had a scare this past summer when another medication didn't work for a procedure because my threshold is so high. This has also started to bother me during the day and I feel that I need to do something about this.
Any Ideas? Thanks, Marilyn W.
Medical Reply If you are already up to 2 mg of Klonopin the maximum dose, then there is a good chance that you are becoming tolerant and are already addicted to this medication. You should get your doctor to start you on Mirapex or Requip, then when your RLS is under control, start to taper of off Klonopin slowly under the supervision of your doctor.
If you have trouble sleeping while tapering of off Klonopin, Ambien can be used to help promote sleep.
At the time they told me there was nothing I could do for it. My wife at the time was taking Tryptophan for MS and it worked pretty well.
I tried it and it had pretty good results for me also. Unfortunately, it's no longer available. I do believe RLS is stress related at least for me. My wife and I were divorced after 20 stressful years and I had a definite improvement in my RLS, I'm not suggesting divorce, just that stress seems to play a large part in the RLS condition.
My RLS comes and goes now, as does my stress. I tend to be pretty anxious anyway and I think this has something to do with it but I'd rather be anxious than on drugs.
Physically, I do find that having my knees above my hips in a recliner makes the symptoms worse. Some chairs and car seats where I sit with my hips below my knees make it worse.
I don't take anything for it, I've learned to deal with it and try to relax when I'm up in the night and find ways to enjoy the serenity of the night. I know that if I give in to the frustration of being up I'll just be up longer.
I saw many articles about antihistamines keeping people up for long hours. I am very sensitive to antihistamines also but I don't think it's related to RLS unless it has to do with us being rather light sleepers and the antihistamines pump us up just enough to be more aware of the RLS symptoms.Synthroid j tube lethal dose of clonidine norvasc dry mouth zithromax 1 gm pack joseph c allegra papers tree specialists massachusetts viagra shipped next day air coding amiodarone toxicity famciclovir herpes lasix medication form lexapro medication tamsulosin 0 citalopram inhibitor paroxetine research james m rae levaquin dose for copd allegra point apartments austin tx celexa lexapro sildenafil 50 remeron overdose stroke stopping in d 5 w revista country club barranquilla erythromycin gel pregnancy prednisone 5 ml suspension metformin and iodinated contrast dye floxing research pp nicholas k hayward tec dexamethasone ophthalmic solution.
Tom H. Tryptophan is a precursor of serotonin and promotes sleep.
