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
I also have had severe restless legs for years and have tried almost all the meds they have including gabapentin. I am now on clonazepam which also does not work. Holds me for 2 hours if I am lucky. The only thing that has worked for me is Norco, which I can no longer get as doctor will no longer prescribe because of the opioid crisis. Just one pill at night would allow me to sleep most of the night.
Good luck to youl
