Suffered from RLS for 8 years now

Posted , 3 users are following.

Pramipexol has been my salvation for the last 8 years. Luckly I seem to have a mild case and I don't usually feel the symptoms during the day, except sometimes on weekends when I'm chilling at home. But I've had to increase the dosage three times during these years. Apparently I may have to increase it once again soon. I'm going through a crisis right now as I write. sad

    I did the same thing. Eventually the Pramipexol was making things worse, which is known as augmentation. It was awful and I hope that isnt happening to you. Going off it was horrific and now I'm struggling with getting the Neupro patch and Gabapentine figured out.

He tried another med and it had different effect on him...he was up 48 hours straight after taking.....there has to be something different out there to help....any advise would be great!!

      Never heard of this and many other drugs i read here. Has he ever tried Pramipexol? It works just fine with me and I've never experienced any side effects. Maybe he could talk to his doctor.
