I would be very greatful for some feedback to this. I've had RLS most of my life. I've recently forced myself to get help due to a new job which this is jeopardizing. I've tried EVERY med that Dr's have to offer. None help much. Most make me feel crappy or it seems I'm taking too many to get even a little sleep. The ONLY thing that has been remotely effective is strong analgesic. Painkillers. Doctors have let me try them but then won't continue to prescibe them for me. They insist I'll be an addict and they will lose their license. Even the Pharmacist treats me like a junkie. It's tremendously depressing. I don't understand how they can prescribe 2, 3, 4 or more doses of drugs that I feel are more dangerous and unknown than 1 or 2 of something that's well known and works. What difference does it make? I'm very upset about taking ANYTHING! I've NEVER had to before, I just managed on 2-4 hrs of sleep every night, but now I am desperate for help and I can't get it. So please..is ANYONE out there on a schedule of pain medication for this? What are you taking and how? How is your doctor approaching it? How did you and your doctor arrive at this therapy? How did you find your doctor? Please reply..someone! Thank you. Randy
