Must be a couple of years since I posted on here - at that time I'd progressed from unsatisfactory Ropinirole to the then-new Neupro 3mg transdermal patch, at which point I thought I'd cracked it. However, over the last few weeks the patches seem to have lost their efficacy - got no sleep at all last night. My thoughts drifted to the well-known benefits of 'medical cannabis' in the treatment of some neuro-muscular disorders, but which is off-limits in the UK. I've done some digging around on-line this afternoon and came across a product known as CBD Oil, or 'medical marijuana', which is cannabis with the high-inducing THC removed and therefore entirely legal. There are many scientific reports on-line that suggest that this compound is effective in the treatment of pain associated with RLS, and any number of vendors. It can be either 'vaped' in an e-ciggie, or a few drops placed under the tongue before bedtime. It's a bit pricey, but what price a good night's sleep? Has anyone else out there looked into this, or maybe even tried it?
Thanks in advance for any comments/advice.
