Welcome to

sford0202, who has suffered from RLS for sford's entire life, as does sford's father, and as did his mother. sford suffers from side effects of Mirapex but can't lie down at all without that drug. sford would love to share stories, ideas, and find support.

Please post a note telling us about the dose and side effects that you are experiencing with Mirapex so that we can offer some suggestions for improving your situation.

Welcome to rlsgal70

Welcome to

rlsgal70, who has RLS & iron deficiency. She is unable to take iron supplements because it causes constipation. Life is hell

You sound like a good candidate for an iron IV treatment. These are a relatively new development in the treatment of RLS. If your doctor is not familiar with these, post a note and we can point you to documents that you can share with him/her.

Welcome to

msmorning, who is not able to take a nap or get a restful night sleep due to RLS. msmorning is desperate for relief and wants to stop using ropinerole.

Please post a note telling us about the dose of ropinirole that you are taking and how long you have been on this dose so that we can offer some things to discuss with your doctor.
