Comment from: 55-64 on Treatment for 10+ years (Patient) Published: February 17

I have been on Requip for Restless Leg Syndrome for over 12 years, and on the Extended Release formula (4 mg in the morning) for about 2 years. It has been a lifesaver, as my RLS is very severe, and has been getting worse and worse over time. I have very few side effects from it, but if I forget to take it, my whole body reminds me. RLS is not just limited to your legs - the whole body can be involved.

Have severe PLM/RLS. Take 7.5 mg/day. Unfortunately, requip is only marginally beneficial.
