I wonder if anyone could give me their opinion on magnesium malate?
I have suffered from RLS all my life but it became unmanageable once I started the menopause at 50 and I was down to 2-3 hours of broken sleep a night. After various unsuccessful suggested home remedies I went to my GP and was given Ropinorole. I thought I had found the answer - it was brilliant. However 12mths later I am suffering from augmentation and rebound. My doctor simply wants to increase my dose and doesn't believe in augmentation because he has never heard of it and everybody else he knows is ok on Ropinorole! I feel like I have hit a wall. At least I have a referral to the neurologist from him as he won't support me in coming off Ropinorole which I understand can be pretty bad. So I have written off my evenings and take 1mg at 10pm which allows me to sleep til 1am, I then take another 1mg which allows me to sleep until 5pm. But I know this will also become less as the tablet reduces its effect.
In the meantime and while I wait for my appointment I am trying Magnesium Malate 300mg at night. I have only being doing this a few days and have not yet noticed any effect. How long does it take?
I also considered taking Curcumin - has anybody tried this and with what results? And can you take the two together?
