I was fortunate enough to see a top specialist in restless leg syndrome. As I am 32 he has advised I come off the tramadol I take at night and instead take pregabalin I am on the neupro patch so they should work well together. To be honest getting to sleep which is usually my biggest problem is no longer an issue. It's the staying asleep. I get between 4 hours and 4 and a half hours a night then I wake up with pain in my legs and need to get up. I'm not on the suggested maximum dose of pregabalin he's increasing it gradually.
I have tried a lot of other medication previously. What i want to know is, is the lack of sleep due to the tramadol being stopped?? Has anyone else suffered this way??
