Great news!!!

I wish I. Could take tramadol aswell as pregabalin, but they don’t suit me, any strong painkilller makes me have panic attacks. I’m at a loss as what I can do for pain.

Have you tried gababentin?

Yes, it helped but made me way too spaced out, I couldn’t function at anything, and I have to work. It only helped the rls though and not the pain.

Sorry to hear this Leelee...

that's great news. wonderful. don't be tempted to increase the dose if the effect ever wears off is all i would say. from experience this leads to problems. but for the moment and i hope for a long time enjoy the bliss of what so many others, and also ourselves before this horrible condition emerged, take for granted

So pleased for you , it’s like a Miracle and you hope it stays that way , I also take Pregablin and Tramodol and I have done 10nights no probs but then it’s back , but am having a lot of good night now so let’s hope that’s my miracle xx

I'm on pregabalin and tramadol at the moment at if i take one lot in a mornings and one before bed. I am rls free and very happy with them, but have become worried about all the reports of opioid addition and ttramadol making rls worse in the long run so now don't know what to do.

Alc, I would try not to worry too much and enjoy the relief. Like Alison says, it is worth exercising caution about increasing the dose. Many sufferers suggest that aiming for 90% coverage of symptoms rather than 100% can help to prolong the useful like of the drugs. It is also useful to make sure to keep your serum ferritin high. If you’re really concerned, you can try to build on breaks from the medication every so often but I wouldn’t do this too often as coming off either tramadol or pregabalin can be difficult
