Restless Leg Syndrome board

What happened was he participated in a sleep study/drug program where they were testing what we think was Requip. It worked wonders for him so after the study ended and Requip was put on the market for RLS he went to his doctor and asked for it. As soon as the study ended and he stopped the medication his RLS kicked back in full force. The doctor has been playing around with dosages. He was on 3 mg for quite a while and it was working fine then he decided on his own to try getting off of it. Well, needless to say the symptoms got so severe he could hardly sleep. So he's back on the 3mg but it doesn't seem to be working like it did. He is miserable.

He is on Benicar for HBP and Synthroid for thyroid.
