I have been a RLS sufferer for nearly twenty years. My family doc put me on klonopin which worked wonders. After years of using Klonopin (not abusing) it. A sleep specialist suggested I switch to Suboxone. Not knowing exactly what it was I agreed that was 5 years ago and now my insurance company said no more suboxone. So i've weaned myself down and now off the suboxone. I'm on day 6 and the only problem is my RLS is back with a vengeance. I have not slept in 4 nights. Hot baths at 230 in the morning gives little relief. So I called my family doc and tomorrow I go again. I have been eating bananas, bitter cherries, tonight I will try the icy hot with lotion. Wish me luck.

third generation of suffering with this, when I walked in on my mother in the bathroom one day and saw her legs black and blue from beating her legs because of the jerking I knew I had to find something, by the grace of God my Chropractor had given me a book from the 1950's to read that had a heart research findings that their test subjects that had been given vitimin e and had suffered with restless leg had stopped suffering with it. So I first tested it on myself, I weigh more than my mother it took 3000 IU'S to stop mine, my mothers stopped with 1500 IU's, my sister also uses it and my daughter, and for awhile I had to rub vitamin e on my grandsons legs at night, but he seems to have outgrown it. Calcium and Magnesium help as well taken as least 2 hours before betime as well as the vitamin e.

The insurance company knows best....NOT! I'm sorry. Best of luck overcoming this.

Suboxone is most commonly prescribed for heroin and opiate addicts. I recently got off this medication and my rls is back terribly. You CAN get through it. Adding other medications just complicates things. I can't believe you were on the suboxone for 5 years! I've never heard of anyone taking it for nearly that long. It's very hard to come off of. It was nearly as hard as heroin for me. I have been off heroin for 14 months and suboxone for almost 2 months. All symptoms, including rls, get better over time, especially with daily exercise and eating very a healthy diet and drinking plenty of water.

Hi Lisa,

My name is Harry and I am developing a documentary for Channel 5 in the UK. We made a documentary about RLS in the UK on Channel 5 and are looking to make a follow up documentary about RLS in the USA. I'm very sorry to hear about your condition. I'd be grateful to talk to you about it if you'd be interested.
