Re: Off Requip and on Ropinorole - Want to try Hydrocodone

Since I went off Requip for all the reasons you stated after taking it for 3-4 years....I have been taking one Hydrocodone each night. Once in a while I need to take another half, but that is it. I realize my RLS got worse over time due to the medication. The new rule is that there are three medicat...

Re: getting off miraprex

I'll try again. The medicines are worse than the problem and they increase the symptoms while you are thinking that the RLS is just getting worse. I was ready to jump off a bridge. I decided to just stop. I went off Ropinerole in Feb. of this year. It has been pure hell....BUT I am better now. Be re...

Re: Remission?

Mary......I have a long story but I'll try to make it short. I took myself off Requip in January after the worst RLS I have ever had.... I kept augmenting earlier and earlier, couldn't sit in a restaurant,movie or go out to lunch. Personally, I don't think it was just RLS but it was caused by the me...

I have been taking .25 of Ropinerole

I have been taking .25 of Ropinerole for about 4 - 5 years. I have had RLS since childhood. The augmentation was getting horrible...could not stand it anymore, so decided to quit taking my meds. I did not want to increase the dosage. It is now 7 months later and I have been through hell. No sleep in...

Re: Take Drugs...and then what do you do?

I was taking .25 every nite at the same time and every nite my RLS started at that time. It got worse and worse, the sensations became extreme and I felt hopeless as to what to do. No doctor can give an answer. So I decided to cold turkey...it wasn't fun but now, after the misery of getting off the ...

Drug Holiday

About two months ago I decided, on my own,to try the drug holiday. It was out of desperation.....the rls had gotten to a point of no return...augmentation during the day and night...crazy sensations in legs and arms....hardly sleeping. I have been taking Ropinerole for years and I was fed up with th...

Re: new diet

Peanut1 I also feel my RLS has been made worse by the meds...(Ropinirole - generic for Requip). I never used to get RLS EVERY nite...now I do...at exactly the same time. Like my body is demanding the meds. I want to get off them...but psychologically, it's difficult. I feel like I will be up all nig...
