Restless leg syndrom
Yes. They wound up putting me on Requip XR 8 mgs in the morning and 2 mg IR before bed. It’s more that RLS. Tell your doctor so.

My doctor gave the Requip to me but I’m nervouse about taking it. Did it help and did you have any bad side affects?
No Side effects at all. And mine was rediagnosed as as a resting tremor, which may be what is happening to you. It’s an autonomic nervous system breakdown. Mayo has been great about helping me manage them. Requip is definitely the best thing out there. Some Dr.’s beliefs are that RLS is a deficiency in Magnesium or Potassium; however, many of their recent studies have found this to be erratic in findings. Hope this helps.
I appreciate the info. RLS and leg pain runs in one side of the family “all women”, I’m the first man to have it and it is driving me nuts. FD
