    I also find that medication must be taken around 6 PM to sleep at 11 PM. There are occasions it works less well. This past month twice I felt my legs had electric currents charging them.

    This medication has been very effective at relieving my restless legs symptoms. I dont have any problems with urges or hallucinations. Helps me get a restfull nights sleep. It takes about an hour to start workig. If i go to bed before it is working my legs will twitch and jerk. It helps me to get a good 7 to 9 hors of sleep. Im very thankful for how this medication has helped my restless legs.

    Mirapex has been a savior for me until recently. I am taking it with tizanidine. Lately, they just don't work. Ropinarole was added and seems to make the symptoms worse. I'm up to three tabs at night of ropinarole and my legs and arms are constantly wanting to twitch and jerk. Don't sleep more than 3-4 hours, too restless to lay there.
