Hi,I found out yesterday for the sleep clinic I have got RLS, along with fibromyalgia and heart problems along with high bp ,asthma and a few other things. It hake a medicine chest full of drugs including, MST, Oramorph , pregabalin. quetiapine, escitalopram , and another 5/6 tablets
. Then the sleep doctor gave me a whole list of tablets on top. He gave me an iron tablet with vit c. The one I would love some answers too is ropinirole, starting at .25 mg then quickly getting up to 1 mg or even up to 2 mg aday. I took my first dose last night and spent the morning feeling so very sick.
I just wanted to know if this drug is a good one at the doses he said and how long do the side effect last for .
The one thing that really worries me is, the chance of sudden onset of sleep including falling asleep standing up.
The joke is I had asked him 3 times if my falling asleep sitting on a stool and sometimes standing up and I wake as I start to fall. This worries me for things like cooking using the hob as my fear is falling into the lit gas. He didn't really give me an answer other than it may be due to my the drugs I take and it seems he has given me a new drug take could make this happen more!
Any advice would be great thanks
