I have had RLS pretty much all my life. It started getting severe in my 30s. I started taking mirapex 9 years ago and the dosages just went up. My doctor put me on requip and for the last 6 months I have not had much luck with the drug it is hit or miss. If I take it after symptoms start you never end. I went to a pulmonary doctor who took me off requip and put me on gabapentin. This was last Thursday he told me to wean myself off the requip and start with 600 mg of gabapentin before bed. It is not working I have taken two more pills equating to 1200 mg and it's still not working. I've been up all week and haven't had much sleep. It's almost 3 a.m. and my legs will not quit. I need help and I would like to know if there is an adjustment. For my body or gabapentin
