I'm on ropinorole 2mg and have been on this dose for about 3 years. I'm wondering if others find that it works intermittently? I seem to have a run of reasonable nights sleep 4-5 on the trot, then the tablet seems to stop working and I get little sleep. It eventually kicks in a gain and I can sleep again!. Recently I had a bout of flu and felt quite ill with headaches and fever but amazingly no RLS at all!!!. Bliss was almost wonderful to be able to lie still and sleep without legs jumping and twitching. Unfortunately as soon as I started feeling better the RLS returned with a vengence. I've now had 4 nights with very little sleep and am feeling almost desperate and very miserable. i just hope tonight will be better.
