ML, although the ER medications are designed to last 12 hours, reality is they don't. Many find the 8 hour mark is about the normal. We all metabolize our medications differently. My thoughts are you are not becoming tolerant to the medication. I think its great that you can take the acetaminophen helps kick start it.
No, Healing Well does not have a separate forum for restless legs. However, you are more than welcome to post here about it. Many years ago I had restless leg & it just came out of no where. I would wake myself up kicking in the middle of the night. My dr put me on Mirapex & that really helped. He also had me massage my legs & feet. Are you on any medication for this? I stayed on Mirapex for a couple of years & decided to stop taking it to see what would happen. As it turned out I did not need to go back on it. It apparently left just like it appeared. My husband is diabetic & let me tell you he kicks & twitches all night long. It is common for diabetics to get this.
