Re: requip

Hi there,

I also suffer with RLS and take requip 3 mg. I need to take mine a good hour before bedtime for it to work best for me.

Perhaps the dosage is too little or you need a bit more time to adjust to the medication. I would mention it to your doctor for exact advice.

He is just a gp and not up on rls, I enjoyed this health board because I get help and answer, I do know that 1mg is not enough but I do not know if I dare take more. the pills are.25mg






Thank you Can I ask you one more question due I dare take more than 1mg or is this take on a slow bases,
