slow release ropinarol

anyone had a reaction to this, slow release ropinarole only my GP put me on this been on it now for over two weeks finding it fine for my legs but for some reason my brain wont let me sleep, so went back on the immediate ropinarole but I think I have augmentation my legs are driving me barmy just don't no what to do, I even sent DR Buchfuhrer an email to see if he could shed some light on the matter, but without my medical facts he cannot help me, I am hoping someone out there can help, tried all the dopamine drugs, tramadol,even been on oxycodone, that was brilliant for the pain but once again kept me awake all night, literary tried everything going. HELP

Ropinirole can, I believe, make one obsessed with thoughts of gambling, sex etc. Might something like this be affecting your thoughts? I think it may improve as you get used to it or reduce the dose.


I have been on & of ropinarole for a number of years so I don't think its anything to do with that,this is the first time that I've been on slow release so I might reduce the dose see if that helps thanks for your reply anyway.
