Discussions that mention requip

Restless Leg Syndrome board


hi. i was diagnosed with rls when i was about 19. after many many months of horrible test (including mri, catscan, shock therapy, etc.) the doc finally found out why my legs (and sometimes arms and trunk) convulsed.

i was prescribed neurontin and have taken it ever since (i'm now 25). lately, however, i find that it isn't working as well.

in today's copy of parade magazine (it comes with our sunday paper), there was an article about rls and requip. it's a parkinson's medication that's under review by the fda for treatment for rls.

has anyone heard anything about it? anyone on it? anyone part of a clinical trial for it?
