I have had RLS for about 45 years (I am now 65 ) and Rheumatoid Arthritis for 5 years. I recently started new medication for RA - Leflunomide - and within a few days I noticed my RLS getting worse. I only suffer with my legs at night as soon as I go to bed and have been fairly well controlled with a Pramipexole tablet in the evening but since starting the new medication for RA the Pramipexole has not helped. After several nights of getting very little sleep I decided to take 2 Pramipexole tablets instead of one and thank goodness it worked and I got a decent sleep at last.
Has anyone else had this experience with this RA medication?
