  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • I have had really bad Restless Leg Syndrome since May 2013 and with the help of the Methocarbamol it works wonders. I take 1 to 2 pills every 6 hours or as needed. I saw results within the first use. I would also like to add that it helps with pain that is localized or for pain throughout the body.

    Seroquel helped me with my sleep disorders due to my BiPolar and Anxiety issues. I originally started at 100mg at bedtime which was offering me a little relief but my physician bumped it up too 300mg at bedtime where I was getting alot more rest. My anxiety was getting really bad so it was bumped up too 600mg. My anxiety dropped, however, I was sleeping almost 16 hours a day.
