Tramadol- really works- is the generic for Ultrum. When I slip up and let the rx expire it is misery, misery, misery. After 30 years looking for solutions, even leg nerve tests, etc., tramadol is the only fix. Highly recommend.

I'm surprised that the drugs are bad crowd have not jumped all over this. They would much rather use bars of soap, magnets, and other placebos. Problem is that placebos work for no more that 30% of the people, the rest of us need relief (and some sleep). If you have read the approx. 30 pages of this site like I have, you will see that the ONLY THING that works for 100% of the people that try them are narcotic pain killers. Someone is going to say: 'But Jeff, narcotics are addictive, you will suffer when you stop taking them.' HELLO, I AM ADDICTED TO SLEEP!!! I do not intend to ever give up sleeping. A lot of the folks on this site appear to be addicts in varying stages of recovery, but the rest of us are much better off getting a few hours of sleep a night with the aid of tramadol, or hydrocodone, or whatever than trying to drive cars, work, etc. with NO sleep. If your doctor will prescribe tramodol, you are blessed.

Tramadol is the cure. I have suffered with RLS for a long time and the only time the Tramadol doesnt work is when I run out. Get it and you will forget about RLS.

I SUFFER from RLS and it seems to be controlling my life. How can I obtain Tramadol?

Jeff

Tramadol is a prscription pain killer. I know it works for RLS as do other narcotic pain killers. You need to find a doctor to write the script. RLS is caused by a deficiency of dopamine. If the definition of a ' home remedy' is something that you can do without a prescription, there is NO home remedy for RLS. Find a doctor! If the doctor tells you to put soap in your bed or drink tonic water, RUN do not walk to the nearest exit!

Hey SK, as you say if you intend to take Tramadol, be prepared to take it for life'.....Hmmmm that's a good idea as I hope to SLEEP EVERY NIGHT for the rest of my life! I guess that's the answer then, Thanks!

Jeff

AS SK says, take kratom, it's natural. We all know that NATURAL is BETTER right. That is why I wash in poison ivy, drink snake venom, and love the nicotine in cigarettes - all of it is NATURAL and therefore good for me.

I have suffered from RLS - now RBS for at least 20 years.I have consistently been on neurontin which helped me for many years but now is so severe my whole body goes into violent jerking so I am back to trying to other options - mirapex in the last few weeks. Just makes it worse and getting off it has been terrible.I am also a nurse.While tramadol may help the RLS symptoms ( I have not tried it myself)it is indeed addictive.In my state -KY- it is becoming more and more difficult for anyone to find a doctor that can continue to write long term controlled substances.Working in a substance abuse setting we are frequently seeing patients who have been on prescription narcotics or benzos from their doctor for many years.Now, because of the new laws that have been put in place they are having to cut patients off and they end up with us going through detox etc. Believe me, right now I have only slept a couple of hours in the last 5 days and feel really desperate, but I would have to think long and hard about tramadol.Mirapex is no bargain either with many people I have read about having full blown detox trying to get off that, and it's not controlled. It's a real hard place we are in.

So Marie, tramadol worked for FOUR YEARS - it worked as long as you took it. But because it's designation was changed you stopped??!! OMG - so if you are a vegetarian and someone decides that lettuce is meat, you stop eating lettuce. Wow. By the way, you went through withdraw because you chose to stop - so any ill effect was YOUR choice. Maybe you are just not smart enough to take tramadol and deserve to ssuffer from RLS.

For those of you that think Tramadol is the way to go, well after hearing my story my want to search out another option. I too suffer from RLS, have since I was 16. I had a heart attack in my mid 30's, which I believe was the result of stress brought on by stress from all the years of lack of sleep. Soon after I found a doctor who prescribed what I thought at the time was a miracle drug, Tramadol. I had 5 years of blissful sleep! However I also formed a powerful addiction to the drug. The doctor realized this too and took me off the drug and i went through the most horrible withdrawals, i thought i was going to die. So I went to another doctor who prescribed it to me again and i was good for another 2 years, then he did the same thing. This happened once more. For 2 more years. After that I was black-flagged and considered a doc-shopper and could no longer be prescribed any narcotics of any kind. I could not handle the withdrawals so I brought the Tramadol from a friend who had a prescription. To sum this up, I was eventually arrested for having the meds in my possession without a prescription and spent 4 months in jail. Being Being 48, in jail, going through withdrawal, and having RLS is far worse than just having RLS. So Please pick another option. The risk of addiction is not worth it!!!

So GM, the Tramadol worked for many years until you stopped taking it and then really bad things happened? The lesson then is if it works, DON'T STOP taking it! Because I am addicted to sleep as well and really hope to feed that addiction EVERY night for many many years.
