... the rest of my life..I am 65
I started out many years ago with Mirapex. I was switched to Requip (ropinirole) about ten years ago. I am 64 and never thought about eventually getting off the med. I take at least 4 mg. a day. If I don't take my afternoon dose of 2 mg., my evening dose doesn't work as well, and I suffer all night. Sometimes I need to take 1 mg. in the morning also.
If your RLS isn't too distressful, you could talk to your doctor about lowering your dose, but I, for one, figure that if it makes my life better, I don't mind taking whatever.
