Major Restless Legs Problem

Updated
Ritz Says:

Have had restless legs and arms for years. Take 2 mg of require daily but it's not enough. Tried 600 mg of gabapentin a day that didn't work. Now trying carbidopa-levodopa with the requip. Anybody else get this to work? Also have severe sleep apnea with clap and anemia.

Hello, Ritz! How is the new combination working for you?

You may experience some common side effects, such as nausea, hypotension, hair loss and auditory hallucinations.

Have you looked into Iron deficiency? I just started 300 mg gabapentin to see if my periodic limb movement disorder will improve. Just 2 nights in and have had some anxiety open waking. Have you found any relief? I know Iron is a big connection to restless legs but not sure about the testing you need for it. I think your blood test can come up normal but not sure....still researching.
