I may be a little behind you all (and therefore hopefully not naive!) but my Dr. finally prescribed my Ambian to help me catch up on sleep. Though it took me a couple of nights to feel finally caught up, I DID notice my moods increasing each day of. I did even mention my crazy moodiness to him (wond...

I just went to the Dr. less than a week ago, to try and change my meds because of my worsening of symtons/no more relief from meds, and did bring up my tingling fingers. He didn't even think the fingers were related. He completely changed my treatment plan, though, from just Requip, to Miraplex and ...

Thanks for the Amazon tip. I will probably buy it this weekend. I actually woke up "bycling 100 mi per hour last night". First time I've caught myself doing this. And this is WITH taking requip. I'll let you know how this tool works.

Another sleepness night, but I feel so relieved by everything I've seen on different parts of this site. Each category/topic is something that I have experienced, and it feels so much better knowing it is not just "me". I had just found this site a few days ago. Probably the most comforting has been...

I have had Renogs for 15-ishyears. RLS much after (past yr "diagonosed"). However, for the past 1 1/2 mos. my fingers have been numb/tingly (w/o the pain of renogs, which happens w/cold, so I dissaociate the two) and my toes are now starting to go numb. I am starting to think it is the requip. Any c...

non-pharm

I am going through the different sites of the board- can you tell me what this is and where to get it? It sounds very useful... Sleeptracker watch - II - not sure this belongs here. It doesn't help prevent RLS, but helps you track the PLMs at night. It also will awaken you at an optimal time, so you...

I am really glad to see that I am not losing my mind or this is not my imagination. Another interesting point you bring up- the tingling of the neck. About 6 weeks ago, my index fingers began to tingle and they still aren't right. I've not discussed this with my sleep dr., however I have discussed i...

Thank you so much. Yes, I thought from my own research that I match PLMD more closely, though diagnosed with RLS. It could be the Drs. exp. or lack of. Thank you SO much for the medication recommendation and the other info concerning the side effects. I will definately ask my Dr. about this medicine...

Sleep Problems due to Requip/Misdiagnosis?

I have been taking .5 requip (.25 didn't work) for about 2 mos now. I couldn't stay up past 9 prior to taking Requip. After Requip, randomly, I was waking up in the beginning of me taking this medication at 3am. Now, I can't stay up past 10, but w/requip lately I have been waking up at 2:30 pm every...
