    I was prescribed this medicine for restless leg syndrome. By the second or third night I could tell a difference. By the fourth day I had complete numbness in lips ,hands, knees, and both feet. I could not function properly! Since I stopped taking it, only took it 5 days, still have numbness in hands and feet. This is very uncomfortable and I think more should be put into the warning label.

    I use this drug for RLS. It has been very effective but also can make me very drowsy. I take it before bed because of that. Sometimes I feel like I have just been 'drugged' and can hardly function to get myself to bed, sometimes it doesn't make me sleepy at all! Strange. The other thing I have noticed is that if I wake up in the middle of the night I can't always get back to sleep. ... Show Full Comment

    I have had RLS for over 15 years, I have taken Mirapex for many years and it worked but eventually wore off. Switched to levocardoba, eventually work off. Switched to combination of levocardopa and ropinrole. Now I am on 05 Roinrole at noon, 1 mg at supper and .5 mg clonazepam at bedtime and it keeps it at bay 80% of the time
