Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

Last night was #13 off requip. Symptoms same with rls movements from 2230-0600 this morning. The difference today was that I went to bed and slept 0600-0900, to the loo and then back to bed and dozed til 1030. Then, the best part, I fell asleep in my recliner from 1200-1315 and that hasn't happened ...

Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

Holland, low-dose DA and less augmentation.....that is certainly good to hear! Can you point me to where I might read up on that?

Also, I sent you a private message. Have you seen it?

Re: Cold Turkey off Ropinerole... Day5 of no sleep, how do I know if it's still augmentation

RIKKU9, are you still around? I've been reading about your struggles in a couple of threads and it's been nearly a year since your last post (that I can find). I'm going through pretty much what you did when you went 'cold turkey' and I'm hoping that you finally landed in a good spot and have figure...

Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

My 12th night is under my belt and it was pretty much what has become the norm. I was up all night mostly walking but had some rest while sitting on a high barstool. In this position I can feel the urge to move but the urges are not as strong . I get so tired I almost have to strap myself to the sto...

Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

Legs and arms moving all night but sitting on the high bar stool with my legs hanging down worked surprisingly well to nearly eliminate movement. I never could sit in the recliner. Movements nearly gone about 0530. I vaped and went to bed sleeping right away til 0730. Up for the obligatory pit stop ...

Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

Okay, where to start. First off, Legs...that wasn't what I wanted to hear :<( ..at least not the part about your post DA period being so erratic. Right now I'd go for the 3 day sleep period that you experienced...or maybe that's one of those "be careful what you ask for" things. I understa...

Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

Thanks Sleepy! I hope I'm on the downhill slope as well! Up til now my RLS legs and arms have raged from approx. 2200 nightly and have quieted every morning between 05-0830 returning again the next night. Day time has been movement free. That changed today with movements which drove me out of bed af...

Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

Cell reception....perfect! Last night, my 8th night, was about the same as others. I fled the bed when the legs started moving at 0100. Again, I couldn't sit more than a couple of minutes so stood and walked 'til 0530 when the legs quieted. Back to bed but no sleep then or since and it's now 1530. I...

Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

Hi y'all. Last night was the 7th night and I went into it excited after night 6. Night 7 was not good. Movements kicked in about midnight and moving from chair to chair didn't help as it had the night before. My girlfriend was here last night and I finally went to bed just after 5. I was unable to s...

Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

Stjohnh....you are right. I've had prolonged periods of confusion in the last week. I've had lots of good luck with marijuana prior to this withdrawal process though not during the process. I've read a lot about Kratom and know many report the positive effects. I wouldn't rule out using it but I'm r...

Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

It's 0400 on Tues and this is the 6th night with no Requip. I got the 'usual' 2 hours sleep after the end of the 5th night. I made it til 0310 and was starting to have hopes of NO RLS but no such luck. Several times tonight I actually got sleepy and I felt I could turn off the lights and go to sleep...

Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

Last night was my 5th night without Requip. Symptoms and onset seem to be getting a little worse. Last night movements started the earliest so far at 1030 and lasted 'til 0800. No sitting was allowed other than 2-3 minutes now and then. AT 0200 I walked in the neighborhood for over an hour. This did...

Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

I took my last 1.5MG dose of Requip at 7PM on Tues 3/21. So tonight is my 5th night w/o the meds. I keep thinking that since my case of RLS is so much less severe than many others, my withdrawal will take fewer days. I've been told that the dose I had taken for so long, 1.5 and more and more frequen...

Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

Thank you Rachel! Are you suggesting that once I complete the withdrawal process, and the RLS is stable, that these and other dietary changes still might have a significant effect? I can look forward to that! Do you mean that the sugar and carbs really played no significant part in my RLS symptoms i...

Re: Requip & Erectile Dysfunction ???

Once again, I really appreciate all the feedback I'm getting here. Thanks to y'all! I started this process with my last dose of Requip on Tues evening and it's now Sunday morning just after midnight. It seems like it's been 2 weeks but I guess when you're not sleeping the time will drag. In the last...
