Travel Tips

Postby Kwazylegs » Wed Jan 17, 2007 2:32 pm

My wife and I are planning a driving trip to Arkansas next month. Anybody have any suggestions for medications to cope with the RLS during the 700 mile drive? I've read somewhere that Sinemet, taken no more than 4 days a week (to reduce the risk of augmentation), might be a good choice. Mirapex and Requip (for me) either aren't effective, or have drowsiness as an unwanted side-effect. I understand that Sinemet is available in different strengths/combinations. Anybody have experience with this med. for temporary, short-term symptoms during travel? Thanks. ---Andy
