Sleep Dr wants me to get off the medicine I've been using for about 25 years. Carbidopa//Levo . (Because of side effects) He rx'd Neupro patches. Tier 4, $95. Per month. I advise him patch is working but too much $$ . He wants referring PA to write new rx. My pulmonary has been out sick after a surgery. I will ask my PCP, but I'm curious what other meds are out there. Thank you
I have severe RLS-over 900 movements in a 7-hour sleep study! I thought it should be like aerobic exercise and I should be skinny. Ha! I take 45 mg of flexeril (cyclobenzaprine) at night and it’s wonderful. I do take 1 gabapentine at night also, tho it was originally for another issue. I was out of flexeril due to a mail order hang-up and I couldn’t believe the difference! I feel for anyone struggling with RLS, it’s miserable!
I take Lyrica for my foot and leg pain. As far what meds I'm on for PAH, Tracker and plenty of water pills.
I have no answers for you. I learned to just put up with the spasms as I call them as not sure if the meds are doing it or me.
I take Lyrica for the Fibro, baclofen for the spasms though it's not working as well as it could. I had another medicine that worked better. However, they took me off it as they said it was addicting. Ummm, all drugs can become addicting at some point, when we need them to live is what I told them...they still didn't give it back, just gave me baclofen. Cannot use voltaren cause of the heart condition...
So, sending prayers to find the answers you seek.
Hey. My requip is the same mg as yours. I get very nauseous from it. My mother has found a product called Merilife. Sold in cvs, walmart, rite aid. She said it has been a lifesaver. Her gapentin had stopped helping and she was miserable. Try it
I have been taking requip for about 6 months now. It has helped some. I have medicaid so it is covered. Also take trazadone at night 50 mg. That also helps with sleep. Hope you can figure it out. It is miserable being up all night so exhausted but walking the floors!!!
