    Requip for Rls

    Initially I took 0.5 mg ropinirole before going to sleep, after about 4 months I had to go up to 1 mg. Effect is great and I am virtually without discomfort. But I often suffered from nausea, otherwise no side effects … I thought. Since the beginning of the year I have gained about 6 kg without eating anything else. I did not associate this with ropinirole because the weight gain was so slow. But it must be related, especially since I read here that was the case with others.

    Side effects: Increase in weight; Nausea

    Requip for Rls

    i have rls since i am child. then in spurts over several years, then annually. These relapses annually are now accompanied by an aggravation of the symptoms. but I have had the symptoms daily for about 10 years. I started with 0.25. I am now at 2 x 0.5 in the evening. have since slept through the first time (despite the cold and 1 paracetamol). However, I am of the opinion that a dosage should go on throughout the day. It is true that ropinirole works badly when the fidgeting has just begun. so I take it as soon as I sit down in the evening. During the day I can still get up when these symptoms come. However, I had a push now with aggravation of the symptoms. means: pain in the legs no longer only at night in peace, but also during the day. probably as a consequence of the constant movements at night. but unfortunately there is only ropinirole retard from 2.0. I would need it now at 1.0.
