Having realized two months ago that I was experiencing augmentation taking 12 mg per day of Requip XL I told my Neurologist I suspected my problem was augmentation not progression. He wanted to increase me to 16 mg per day and actually gave me a prescription for it. I refused and demanded a lowering...

Re: Dr. Silber and the Mayo Clinic

I actually am not reducing my Requip on my own. My Neurologist is the one who prescribed the 8mg for me to switch to. I really thought that going from 12 to 8 was too drastic of a change. It hasn't been fun.

Dr. Silber and the Mayo Clinic

I wanted off of the Requip 12 mg XL a day and I wanted to see someone that had more than an occasional RLS patient. I started this...

Re: 8 mg's requip

I was diagnosed with RLS in 1997 and have tried pretty much everything. Have been on Requip for sometime but now having to take the hydrocodone almost nightly to get any rest. Most nights I just have to get so tired that I fall asleep around 2am but there is no quality of sleep. I am currently on 12...
