Restless Legs Syndrome

FINALLY SLEEPING

Two weeks ago I began taking a new sleeper (for me), and, altho at first, there was no noticeable improvement, after continued perseverance, it finally delivered. I have not slept so well for .... ever. It is called Melatonin and I am successfully accomplishing between 7 to 9 hours uninterrupted sleep every night.

This is what the marketed name is here in Oz ... could be under a different name in your part of the world.

Good luck to those who try it

Yes it’s available here in the UK, I was started on it a couple of weeks back due to poor sleep and have only woke up once with bad legs and then after about half hour I was off again. It’s def helping me as well as taking ropinerole, the only thing is apparently it shouldn’t be for long term use though😕

What dosage do you take? What other meds had you tried? Just trying to figure out if your case is mild. Do you have PLMS also?

Temazepam work well for 30 years, Irmovan for 6 months wasn't that great.

I take Madopar and Sifrol. My specialist describes my lifelong torture with RLS as chronic.

Yes I also have PLMD but the Sifrol controls that.

I also have severe sleep apnea. Used the CRAP machine for 2 years but didn't change my life at all so threw it out.

Thank you for the reply. Sounds like you've had a rough go of it for sure. I pray the melatonin helps you for a long time.

I take melatonin too.

Melatonin is on the list of over the counter meds that can trigger RLS. It doesn’t do it with everyone.
