Discussions that mention clonazepam

Restless Leg Syndrome board


Iwas just dx'd last tuesday. My dr put me on clonazepam. Anyone have any experience with this medication? I am taking 1mg before bed and so far it has work wonders. I hope it lasts.

I also read some of the post about iron, b-12 an folic acid. He did sent me for bloodwork for iron & b-12 so I m curious to find out the results.

Does anyone have other conditions they think or know that are related to RLS? I also have fibromyalgia, and what type of doctors do most of you see for RLS? I currenlty go to a pulmonary dr.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

Hello Michelle,
I was just diagnosed with RLS last Friday and am taking the same meds as you are. I don't have any other medical problems as of yet. My mother has fibro though. Doctors have not yet said if this is hereditary.
But the meds I am taking are working. I am just seeing my family doctor for this right now.

I just went back today for a follow up, he said since im 32 he dosent want me to stay on the clonezpam. He told me it was more like a tranquilizer, so he switched me requip. The first week I take 1 tab, second week 2..4th week 4 a day. I've been reading some post about the nausea that comes along with it. I hope I still get the restful sleep I was getting with the clonazepam.
