Discussions that mention clonazepam

Restless Leg Syndrome board

:bouncing: [FONT=Tahoma]When I logged back in, it told me I hadn't been here since 03/05/05. Well, since then, I have a "real" diagnosis (not just my self diagnosis) from my neurologist. I also have meds - Mirapex for the restless legs and clonazepam for sleep. After my LOW ferritin level, I also have ferrous sulfate. I had a nearly immediate relief once I started the Mirapex. I am hoping to soon be not always tired, drained, and only wanting to "crash" when I come home from work. Maybe I won't always be so easily irritated, either. Persist in pursuing your diagnosis and treatment. It is worth it. Thanks for the support and encouragement you guys gave me last month.

I am very happy you have found something that works for your rls. My mom suffered with rls for years, not anymore. She takes 2 clonazepam tablets at bedtime and it works for her. She wakes up feeling rested.

I also take clonazepam (min. dose) & effexor (anti-depression capsule) (min. dose) for 5 years now. They have helped my depression and anxiety and have also helped me rid myself of pulsatile tinnitus (heart beat noise in my right ear) for 80 to 90% of the time. I take 1/2 tablet of clonazepam in the am with coffee (so I won't be drowsy) and the other 1/2 before bedtime (without coffee) and I've had great sleeps for 5 years now, no bad dreams and I too wake up rested and ready to start my day. If you take the proper dose of medication, suited to your ailment; you just feel normal, like you should, not drugged.
