Hi everyone after 4years I am VERY HAPPY, for the first time I am actually sleeping through until morning. I wasnt sure at first thought I was dreaming. I don't think my CanCanLegs have stopped but down to this new drug my consultant recomended to my G.P. I am now taking "mirtazapine", it is a anti depressent, I was sooo sleep deprivde "like all of us with bloody RLS I d got to the stage where I didnt see the point going to bed so when I first took this new drug I wasnt very hopeful, the first night within an hour I was asleep. It as been just over 2weeks and I have only woken a few times by RLS. I have also started Acupuncture with my G.P. around 20mins placed in both legs and in my hands. They ached after and felt I had to stretch the legs. I am booked in for another next week. So it is so far so good!!Please note I do suffer with depression and was already taking anti depressent.Thankyou!
