Cat I developed what I think is restless leg syndrome 3 months after knee replacement surgery. In talking to a friend today, I found that she has had the same issues and she is taking the same antidepressant, citalopram. Has anyone ever heard of this drug causing these symptoms? I have an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>en on citalopram for several years, and have not had many side effects until now. The symptoms are bad enough to interrupt my sleep.

Avatar n tn Lead a stress free life, have proper sleep and do regular exercise as with a good lifestyle sometimes the remissions of restless leg syndrome diminish completely. Your physician will try an array of medicines starting from pain killers like tramadol to diazepam, clonazapam, gabapentin or ropinirole. I would suggest you to go to a neurologist for proper follow up. Take care!

Avatar f tn i am interested in dialoguing with anyone about restless leg syndrome. i got it from tramadol. i am successfully dealing with symptoms with hylands restlful legs. however it is not resolving itself. everytime i exercise it returns in full force. it is not just an annoying thing that interupts sleep. for me, there is a greater feeling of disturbance. i get an add or adhd component. i an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>'t concentrate and feel generally jumpy and unbalanced.
Avatar n tn I don't get restless leg syndrome, I get restless body syndrome. I have an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>en weaning for what feels like forever, but when I get down to just a few vics a day it is hell. I toss and turn all night and that is on ambien. But I feel like >>>> if anyone an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> relate. The way you feel after doing coke or mescolin and your coming down.

I decided to stop taking it for one reason I didn't want to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean> dependent on a drug to get me through the day. also, I stayed constipated for days at a time. I have Xanax, but really don't want to take that either. If I do I'll take it to sleep. I have to go back to work tomorrow and I don't know how I will make it.
Avatar f tn I hope you had a good night of sleep. The restless leg syndrome is oftentimes a part of the withdrawal process. When you get to such low dosages, withdrawal symptoms might surface. It sounds to me that you are decided to succeed and put this issue an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>hind you, try these tips to alleviate the pain: Try taking calcium supplements as that might help to ease the muscle aches.
Avatar m tn Tr<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>m<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dol is a tough one. Since you took it for so long you probably should have done a slower taper. anyway it may take a couple weeks to get your sleep back and the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>RLSan> to go away. Try eating a banana everyday....theres something called Hylands that OTC thats helps with the legs. a long hot bath an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>fore an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>d could help too. Good luck.
Avatar m tn But i am pleasantly surprised that i do not so far have restless leg syndrome or any of the symptoms im reading on here about. Kind of scares me just waiting for the other ball to drop and start having all these other symptoms. So you think this bieng day three that i should an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean> ok. THaNK YOU aGaIN FOR THE QUICK REPLY !
Avatar m tn I thought that would let me sleep but after reading online I realize im experience serious restless leg syndrome. What should I do at this point? also, the doctors an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan>not find the source of my leg pains so Im struggling to get back on the Tramadol for the pain...

It has always worked well for the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>RLSan> symptoms. My problem is I am now taking 400mg a day and the medication is no longer working. I tried tapering and the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>RLSan> was raging I couldn't sleep or work. at this point I don't know what to do. My doctor wanted me to try Norco but I feel I would an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean> in the same boat. I am an alcoholic with twenty nine years of sobriety.

Avatar f tn My case it's too complicated but I'm gonna try to not to extend too much, right know I am going through the abstinence of the tramadol y started three weeks ago decreasing the dose until I stopped completely, 4 day ago I am totally out of it,obviously I'm going through a hell, hot <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd sweating flusches,restless leg syndrome,insomnia,chills,cough,sneezing throat sore,etc.

Avatar n tn I also tried to quit cold turkey. I know exactly what you are going through. My insomnia <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd restless leg syndrome were some of the worst parts about the withdrawals. Unfortunatly I don't really have any advice that I know will work for you an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>cause I ended up getting on suboxne a few days ago an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean>cause I just couldn't get through the WD's. However, a few things that helped me when I was having severe insomnia were exercise, like everyone says.. particularly walking on a treadmill..

Avatar m tn as you already know, it usually takes several weeks of the really nasty symptoms of acute withdrawal, followed by several months of just insomnia and general weakness and depression. a physician may an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean> able to prescrian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bean> you some Requip for the restless leg syndrome <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd possibly something like Seroquel low dose for the insomnia.

The problem with tramadol is that its so easy to get, you an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> just order it online w/o a sript and it's there the next day.
