My RLS has got worse again recently as I have been tapering off 8 x Tramadol which was prescribed during DAWS last summer. My GP has prescribed my pregabalin 3 days ago, 2 x 50mg per day. She has said to continue taking the gabapentin, of which I take 6 x 300mg (3 during day, 3 before bed). I have got my tramadol down to 2 x 50mg before bed and she wants me to stay on those for a while. I also take 1.5 clonazepam in the evening. I've not slept a minute since starting on the pregablin and the RLS is worse during the day. I thought dr would taper me off gaba as I moved to pregabalin. Could taking both be making things worse for me, or is this just an initial reaction to pregabalin that I have read about elsewhere which might hopefully subside over coming days.
