Restless Legs Syndrome


hi everybody, my family are all registering with a new doctor today. after my doctor telling me that he was not interested in how i take my pramipexole. he was reducing my dose.

so, i have reduced the dose myself to see what happens. i have left off the midday tablet, taken one at 17-00 and one at 21-00, two hours before going to bed. result. i am not feeling so doped up and falling asleep all day if i relax. sleeping better at night. spent an hour on the floor last night ,kneeling with my legs trapped beneath me. but then slept until 07-15. seven hours sleep. i cannot grumble at that.

i have been on the reduced dose for a week now,i still have rl. but no other side effects.

it will be interesting to hear what my new doctor says on the subject.

regards, pete.

Glad you have changed doctors, i hope the new one has a better knowledge of RLS.


Good for you for changing your GP. Surely this new GP cannot be any worse. ;) Let's hope this doctor listens to you and you can work as a team. It is great that you had a good few hours sleep. Makes all the difference, doesn't it? Do let us know how you go on.
