    Low Dose Of Mirapex

    Hi To ALL .. This is my story with RLS .. i have had a sleep study and found out that I have RLS and also Sleep Apnea. My Doctor at that time put me on Requip at 4mg well it worked great for about maybe 5 months or so then it did not help my feet from moving around .. So then he tried a muscle Relaxer called Flexeril at 10 mg that did nothing at all for my feet so now as of today Im on Mirapex Im to take 1/2 tablet for 7 days then a whole tablet after 7 days and the perscription is only 0.25mg so taking just 1/2 of that pill would be about 0.12 and boy let me say that I put in a terrible night I have had no sleep I was up all night long cause when I went to bed my feet just kept moving worse then ever so I just got up and its 6:53 right now as Im typing this. I really dont think its strong enough .. Im so tired of this that I just dont know what to do anymore? Well now I can go on to bed now cause its morning and my feet wont move now .. HOORAY

    Re: Low Dose Of Mirapex

    I was on .0125 lowest dose, for about 2 wks, then went to .25, the .25 did the trick for me. Now my legs don't move at night. Your probably not on enough.
