I would like advice from our helping friends here because I think the collective experience is the best advice you can get,together with doctors help.
I took Ropinirole for several years & then for various reasons was put on Pramipexole . This worked quite well for the RLS but weight gain & other side effects led me to ask to get off Pramipexole before it was too hard to wean off - had only been on for about 4 months.
Dr has now prescribed Nupentin - starting at 100mg twice daily for 4 days - to increase to 1 capsule 100mg for 2 wks - to then increase to 2 capsules three times daily for 2 wks - then see dr again.
I was wondering how others found Nupentin after being on other RLS drugs and what dose they started on. I have followed instructions for a week & now having problems - cant rest, relax, sleep etc. - legs just keep on jumping etc. I have had some infections & been sick & dehydrated so this is hard to deal with. Wondered if the starting dose is too low or whether I just have to put up & be patient or whether I should take some Ropinirole - which I have some leftovers - dont know whether these drugs mix & match.
Any advice on this please - would be great.
Best wishes to all out there suffering.
