Hi guys I have a few questions regarding augmentation. I have avoided medication for my RLS for years, I am only 30 and didn't want to start taking such a serious medication with all sorts of side effects, then to have augmentation set in and possibly be left in a worse situation than prior to taking the medication.
Now, things have become so bad that I really do need something to help me lead any kind of life. Doctors first offered me gabapentin and now ropinerole.
Those of you that have tried various medications... how bad is augmentation and how soon did it occur for you? And are symptoms really that much worse after augmentation sets in? Or is it just that you'd forgotten how bad it was or that things would have naturally progressed that way anyway?
How many different medications have to tried and how often do you alternate? Is it the case that you could try drug A then drug B then drug C and then go back to drug A again and it would work? Or would it never again have the desired effect?
Sorry for all the questions. Any advice would be ever so gratefully received 💙
