help me stop the "creepy crawlies!"
I will be detoxing soon from opiates, have sub..whatever.  Thought I could just get off the sub, but on day 5 got the creepy crawlies.  Does anyone know how to help this?  This is the WORST W/D symptom I have.  i can deal with the pain, riarreah...etc.  but not the restless leg syndrome.  Does anyone have an answer for me?

Try to exercise, I know it sounds impossible but even a little walk around the block helps tremendously....hot showers/baths help too. You can try Epsom Salts in it.
Best of luck to you. sophie.

Hylands worked for me...but exercise and moving around to fatigue the body is never a bad idea either...

I've hear that potassium can help.  So maybe eat some bananas or get a potassium supplement.  I hate restless leg syndrome and deal with it every morning before I take my morning dose of oxycodone!  Good luck getting rid of it!

Hi-- I get the RLS about 9-10 pm --- about news time-- that is the sign that the night is going to suck--- I have found that taking some tramadol-- helped me get off hydro-- been off for 7 days now--- and I have been taking 3-4 of the trams-- I know people are going to say I traded one for the other-- but this is the longest I have not had a hydro in 4-5 yrs. --- good luck to you   -- Montana CookieChew
