Welcome to

patfav, who has had RLS for over 40 years. She is on Ropinerole and has recently had to up her dosage occasionally to 5 mg. She only recently heard about augmentation and is worried about it. Her new insurance is balking at the dosage.

Please take a look through our forum on augmentation to get an idea of how it is diagnosed so that you can discuss this with your doctor (who may or may not know anything about it). And please post a note telling us about your symptoms so that we can offer you some specific comments.

Welcome to

ziakbrown1, who has a two year old who has not been officially diagnosed with RLS. She wants to discuss, with other parents, what their experiences have been with RLS.

In addition to the forum on Special Populations (where you will find pediatric RLS discussed), you should also take a look at the Foundation's website. They have quite a bit of literature on pediatric RLS. So, we look forward to your post in the Special Populations forum with whatever questions that you have.

Welcome to

Shirl, whose RLS has simply ruined her life, she can't sleep for days on with and absolutely no relief for her RLS. She took Mirapex and is now will trying Ropinirole. She is open for suggestions and will almost try anything.

Please post a note telling us about the doses of Mirapex and Ropinirole that you have been taking. Also a bit more about your symptoms so that we can offer some suggestions.
