Hi,
I have Restless Legs Syndrome and Periodic Leg Movement Disorder, and the problem is, either the meds don't work, and if they do, they make me physically ill! I have tried: Requip, Mirapex, Carb/Levo (several combinations), Percoset, and Novatrin (sp?). Many of them helped my Restless Legs (which also causes my arms to feel restless, too), but the kicking continues...it's starting to really affect my daily habits, because I am now falling asleep at the wheel around 4:00ish pm. It doesn't wake me at night, but my husband is getting pretty beat up. Does anyone have a suggestion of what has worked for you? My neurologist is starting to feel a little frustrated, although I feel he knows other options that he's not trying. Any advice would be appreciated!
