well I have been put on Ropinirole 0.5mg a night. After weeks of no sleep due to legs and arms having minds of their own, I have not had any restless arms or legs since day 1 of taking the drug, but I cannot sleep thru. Wake up every hour on the hour....giving it time to see if these are side effects or my sleeping pattern all out of sink!!!!
My hey these drugs are working...!!!!!
I've been taking Requip (Ropinirole) for over ten years and without question it works for me. I am concerned with long term use and recently had a friend say they are using Alpha Lipoic Acid for their RLS. Wondering if anyone else has had success with that.
