Hi Putter. It is Stox4pat (patti) Just wanted to see if the stuff you got from the drug store is helping your RLS any. I hope so ;~). For the record, (see below also) I am Epileptic besides every other disease there is...LOL trying to keep that sense of humor!! Seriously tho, if u are not getting any relief from your RLS my Neurologist that I see for my Epilepsy, who works at the University of Miami, and Putter there is no better Doc in the world, put me on Neurontin. I was shocked! I was like isnt this a med for seizures/and BiPolar? He told me yes it is, but also works for RLS. Honey I am severely depressed and have a world of illnesses and no way would I stear u the wrong way, this med helped within a week! I couldnt sleep, I thought I was going crazy, It was like my legs were moving when I was laying down, sitting, sleeping (trying to) and I just couldnt take it anymore. So, i take 1 pill that is 300mg (I think that is the only mg they make) 1 x a day. So, I TOTALLY underdtand about having to take so many meds..but the good thing is it is only 1 pill instead of several. Also, my friend DO NOT believe anyone that tells u its in your mind. Putter, it is a real illness, so the other good news is u r not crazy! I guess I shouldn't say that as I dont know u and u may be a serial killer...LOL! Kidding again my dear. Let me know if u need anymore info, I am more than happy to help. I hope u r feeling better. Take care and keep in touch!
