    Requip worked for me at first. It started making my legs hurt earlier in the day. When we moved up the time I took it, the pain just started earlier...

After 2 mos I had increased symptoms & early onset of RLS about 6 or 7pm if I attempted to sit for any length of time. The increased dose seemed to help, but now I am started to have same symptoms & wonder if I need another dose increase. I've also noticed tingling in my hands (mostly ... Show Full Comment

    Since I have beeen using Requip I find that my incidences of RLS has dramatically risen. I canot even lie down to take a nap in the afternoon without getting my "creepy crawly'"in my calves. Some evenings when I get a chance for an extra hour or two of sleep, the RLS pops up again. Requip works extremely well in blocking it, but this is getting rediculous. I am a 60 yr. old femal ...
