I was recently referred to a neurologist for RLS, he put me on ropinirole 1.5mg which didn't work and made me sick, i reduced the dose to 0.5mg but anything higher made me sick so i was told to stop it. The neurologist has now put me on amitriptyline (tried to anyway!), i had a look through some posts and i already had a background knowledge on the drug so i wasnt happy about taking it. I asked my doctor if i could try mirapex or some other drugs such as rotigotine & gabapentin. He told me that gabapentin is no use for rls and i might as well use amitriptyline first if im wanting those drugs. I've told him im not sure and i would ring him back if i did decide i wanted to try amitriptyline. A bit of a ramble! but any advise? I don't think he will give me the drugs i wanted so is it worth trying amitriptyline?
