Hi AMW68

Many sufferers find that Amitriptyline and Sertraline can aggravate their RLS big time.

Regarding Halycon bracelets, there are a few old threads on these bracelets on the forum. If you type Halycon Bracelets into the Search Box at the top of the page you will find them, should you be interested in taking a look.

I am prescribed sertraline, but have had to stop taking it as it aggravates my RLS. I take olanzapine, which helps, also methadone, which helps a lot but is addictive so can't imagine how I am going to stop taking it... ''He who rides the back of the tiger is afraid to dismount''
