I have joined this group on behalf of my mother who has suffered with severe restless legs
syndrome for over 8 years, she takes co-beneldopa and has tried so many other medicines but
nothing helps. The co-beneldopa helps for a couple of hours but then she is up again 3-4 times
in the night, pacing around for hours on end. My mother is 71 and wishes she was dead and I
feel terrible for her, what an awful condition to have. I have experienced tired legs and know how awful it feels so restless legs all night long is unthinkable. Could anyone offer any advice. We
have tried so many of the standard medicines that you have all mentioned but nothing has
helped if anything they made her feel worse so we had to stop them. We have tried Amitriptyline, Co-Codamol, Gabapentin, Prepalin, Clonazepam, Diazepam, Morphine, Ropinarhol, Phenergan,Rotigotine patches, additional Co-Beneldopa during the day, Tramadol you name it we tried it,
mum says all of these medicines make her restless legs worse has anyone experienced this
with different drugs ? Any advice would be greatly appreciated ?
