After 20 years with RLS - I am 70 - began taking generic roprinirole four months ago because of desperation. Now taking .75 around 7.30 pm but legs restless late afternoon rather than around 9pm, and I am wanting to sleep several hours later. Can I take .25 in the afternoon and then .50 an hour before bed. Otherwise there is no way that I can sit down. Christmas, no consultant for several weeks, is it wise to do what my body craves and basically make up my own rules
You're well within safe dosage guidelines for ropinirole. Call your Dr. asap with your present dosage so you're keeping him or her informed. Call even if it goes on a recorded message. This will also help when your prescription needs renewal sooner because you're using it up faster. I have to take mine twice a day also and my Dr. has approved it. I hope you sleep well.
