That's good news! I've been taking Requip for almost 3 years now and it was gradually increased to 3 doses a day, 6 hours apart, of 6mg. morning, 7mg. afternoon (trying to help my "down time" in the early evening) and 6mg. evening. After all these years I can't tell exactly how it is working (you tend to forget how bad you were before you took it), but I know it was first prescribed, it made a big change. And I don't want to go without it just to see how well it works LOL!
