Jean/Sleep and Restless Leg
2 Replies
Debbie - January 9

What do you take for these two conditions. I have had restless leg for about 1 year and it is impossible to sleep. It's pretty severe. I take Ambien but dont' want to stay on that forever. I also tried Mirapex but didn't make it to the two pills per night because of the nausea. Also, do you have any spasms in arms, or just legs. I was thinking Parkinsons, but Mr. Neuro says no. Any medicine suggestions I can bring to my Dr. at the end of the month? Thanks. Also was on Cymbalta for a short time which made it worse.

Hi Debbie: Ask your doctor about taking Remeron, it has the less side affects goes from 15mg through 45mg and it tolerates klonopin very well as I take 11/2 mg at night for sleep also I take Flexeril 10mg for spasms three times a day.See how that might help. sometimes medications work better in some and not in others. I read that most of the serotonin antidepressants make our condition worse and some doctors do not realize this. Ask your doctor. :) smile it gets better as time goes on in keeping it in control.
