Hi all me again and not a good night so far. I am starting that awful journey from Ropinerol to Gabapentin and having problems already. I have heard mention that some people have been given Codine or Tramadol to help with the change over. My question is this. How much and how many tablets are taken? I will try and make this clearer. I had to take Codine for a few months after a back operation and had terrible trouble coming off them and this is one of the reasons my rls has gone into overdrive. I fear that if I take it again to help change from Ropinerol to Gabapentin I will have the same withdrawal issues, anyway my GP will not prescribe Tramadol. Can anyone who has used this route advise? It may be ok I suppose if you just take one at night to help you get to sleep and not as a full course of 6 to 8 tablets a day? Any advise?
