Brandy is right, DAs do cause augmentation, worsening of rls sensations, experiencing rls in areas not normally affected. Use the search option at the top o...

Dear Brandy, It may be that it is indirectly related to the unmanaged RLS/PLMD. When we are not able to achieve quality restorative sleep, have continuous pain, our bodies pain signals can be heightened. During sleep I know that I flex my feet alot as DH has told me, so it is possible that is a cont...

Ahhhhhhhhhhh Dear Penquin, I so agree, and while it is iimportant to raise RLS education and awareness... these commercials can make me frustrated when others say have you heard about the RLS medication! ((((BIG HUG)))))) Glad to hear from you, hope to see you in other forums!

Dear WDF - There are about 20% of RLS sufferers who do not tolerate the DA's, I am one of them. Truly thankful you suffered no major injury while on Requip, that would have been horrid! Hopefully you are finding information and alternative therapies which are helping you manage your health care. ***...

I carry one of those cards myself. Also gave the dr who is monitoring my RLS treatment a print out of medications for my records. Hopefully someone would look at it if there is ever an emergency medical situation!
