I have horrible RLS brought about by nutritional issues from gastric bypass as well as family history of it. I take up to 2mg of Requip per night. Other than going through a periord of yawning uncontrollably for about 30min and at times becoming deathly sick to my stomach for 30min (usually only when I take the 2mg all at once) it has been a miracle drug for me.

It is so bad and one of the reasons I drank to pass out (I couldn't stand the sensations!) It took a while to get adjusted to the Requip and my doctor has asked if I wanted to try something else but I'll take 30min of discomfort a night than the hours of h*ll I used to!

Hugs,
Kellye
