Hello everyone .... it seems to be an awful long time since I have touched base with you guys. So thought I might give you an update on my meds and my life.
Well I have eventually moved from that tiny town Out West and have almost settled in to the coastal way of life and I love it. Extremely hot but I love the heat so it suits me just fine.
As for my medication, I was seriously worried that I was beginning to argument on Sifrol, so between myself and my doctor (just in case my assumptions were correct), started me on Clonazepam. I have cut my Sifrol dosage by half and have ceased taking all sleepers whatsoever. first time in 35 years without any sleepers at all but the Clonazepam has seemed to pick up the slack.
At first I was terrified of taking the Clonazepam, as I have heard and read so many bad things about that drug, but understanding that I was going to have to cut down on the Sifrol, there was simply no other alternative. And so far so good. I am sleeping well and my RLS is still under control .... really cannot wish for anything more.
However the OCD (obsessiveness) seems to be kept getting worse and my attempts to control it, are failing miserably. BUT it's still better than the torture of RLS.
Actually my biggest problem at the moment is my major depression. I just can't seem to shake it. I feel sad all the time. Oh I manage to put on a good front, but I'm at a loss at what to do. I'm actually feeling quite suicidal I am so sad.
