Requip (ropinirole) Consider consulting with a physician regards the usage of this prescription for you condition. It is fda approved for treatment of restless leg syndrome. There is a dosage schedule for the first month, then the dosage remains constant from that point forward. Another consideration would be quinine sulfate, which is not longer fda approved for this condition, but the 324 mg. Version may work.
Restless leg. This is a complex and serious disease that causes great discomfort and loss of sleep. See your physician for a physical exam and tests to look for the causes and then treat you properly.
I'm experiencing muscle cramps in my legs every night when I try to fall asleep and a jittery restless feeling, I try and stretch but nothing helps.
Restless Legs. Some people experience Restless Legs Syndrome. It is an interesting but unpleasant clinical illness. Many things make it worse (alcohol, certain meds), some things seem to possible even cause it (low ferritin), and there are treatments available. Doctors trained in sleep medicine are pretty well versed in it. Good luck!
Restless legs. Restless legs syndrome can be due to other underlying medical cconditions such as iron deficiency, peripheral neuropathy, varicose veins or thyroid disease. Treating the underlying cause may relieve restless legs. Dopaline agonists such as pramipexole, or Gabapentin often help. But there is no such thing as the best treatment that uniformly works well in every single case.
Discover Cause. Daily exercise, avoid tobacco and alcohol and search for an underlying cause such as mineral deficiencies (iron, folate, (folic acid) magnesium), venous insufficiency, or various immune deficiencies.
Many different ones. Firstly, you doctor should make sure you are not iron deficient. Certain drugs may cause the symptoms, as can withdrawal from opioids and benzos. Pramipexole (mirapex) and ropinerole (requip) are the major drugs, but tranquillizers (benzos like klonopin) and opiates can also help, although they cause physical dependency and arent 1st choice. Remeron (mirtazepine) and Gabitril (tiagabine) have also been used.
RLS. There are many classes of medications for restless legs syndrome (rls) including dopaminergics like requip, neupro, (rotigotine) ; mirapex, benzodiazepines, opiates, and antiepileptics. Please see a sleep medicine specialist to discuss options, if you have rls. Hope this helps!
Any pain management interventional treatment such as nerve blocks available for restless leg syndrome?
Depends. There are basically two forms of RLS: a subjective version (symptoms, no visible cause), and an objective one (symptoms with solidly visible underlying mechanism). You mention chronic pain and fatigue and you are young: so it is statistically more probable you have the first - the more difficult. If so, nerve blocks won't work - or will only work temporarily. Emphasize looking for cause.
See sleep specialist. Restless legs syndrome and PLMD are treated with dopamine agonists such as Ropinirole (approved in RLS) or Pramipexole. There are many reports in the literature of exacerbation of these symptoms by antidepressants.
Medications. If the diagnosis is correct and the symptoms are not due to other medical problems, antiparkinsonian medications, such as Mirapex or Requip (ropinirole) in small doses can help.
