For ears I thought I was suffering from insomnia, but my doctor suggested RLS. I thought it wouldn't hurt to try the meds, nothing else seemed to work. Well, I've had the best sleep I've had in years. It wasn't insomnia, it was RLS. Thank goodness it was diagnosed, now no more sleep aids, only Requip for rls.

In 4 months of treatment, I have vomited several times for no reason,was nausiated most of the time and had a bad case of Dry Mouth. However, the medication did relieve my RLS which I suffer from 24/7. I had to take 3 doses a day to cover the 24 hour period. I am moving on to a medication that does not include vomiting in the side effects.
