I have found that instead of taking my whole bedtime dose of 1mg requip at say 10pm, if I just take say threequarters of the pill at 10pm, then when I wake up at around 4am for a bathroom visit, I take the other quarter, this means I may not have symptoms later in the morning upon wakening, which we...

Yeah, got a new memory foam which has less movement, couldn't get a massive one cos room isn't big enough, but still, it helps. It's the taking the pressure off of disturbing a partner !!

I agree with all the other comments. You need to be sure it is rls before starting down the requip route. Having said that, I have been doing ok on requip but had to figure out how and when to take it for myself. My dr. did not know enough about it for rls. but was willing to work with me. I found t...

Hi LeighAnn, it would be wonderful if you did not have rls.
You have said that you take 4 pills of requip. I wondered what the dose is of each pill, and do you take them all at one time?

Hi there, I have a similar problem, tho I take requip. My daily dose is 2mg, so I did not 'up' the daily dose, but I spread it across the day. .5mg at late morning, .5mg at around 6pm and then 1mg at around 10pm. It is not perfect but is much better.
Good luck.

Thanks cadmonkey and susan.
Sorry cadmonkey, I don't reckon he'd be spending the sort of money you are talking about for desks etc.
I actually thought $400 was a lot for a chair, more than we are used to!!

Made my day !!

The background to this little story is that during the day, usually the afternoon, because of my rls, sometimes I have to set a little table on my desk to raise my keyboard, and I set my mouse onto 4 telephone books, this means things are at the correct level for me to stand at my work station for a...

Yes Ann, thank you for all your wonderful information. When I posted my last question, please don't think I 'expect' the answers, I am just pondering aloud.
Please don't think I take anyone for granted. :oops:
Thankyou, Betty
