I've had RLS for 57 years. Had it before it had a name. I have a severe case of it, also in my arms at times and this drug helps some of the time. I combine it with Norco. These seem to be the only two meds I've tried that have any affect on my RLS at all. I've noticed that I do have severe cramping of the fingers, legs and feet almost everynight, which now keeps me as awake as th ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I've had RLS for 35 yrs. Mirapex works like a charm, a miracle drug. Tried Pramipexole, the generic for Mirapex.
