If it weren't for the people on this forum I would be in a real mess with my RLS meds. I am taking Requip and found out I was taking way to much and going into augmentation . I was taking 2 2mg tab.3-4 times a day. plus going without sleep for days at a time. I had a 2 mo. wait to see my Dr.
So. thanks to google here's what I did. Instead of cutting down on the dosage you extend the time between doses. It can be a little uncomfortable, but not unbearable. I managed to cut out one dose by doing this and I was starting to feel better. When I saw my Dr. he increased my Requip to 1 3mg tab 2 times a day plus 2 2mg of Colenzapam at night. It's been working for about 6 weeks. I am very careful now to write down the times when I take my meds and to extend the time between doses if I can. According to my Dr. he won't be able to increase the dosage for me so I have to make this work.
I know this isn't the answer for everyone and it might be temporary for me, but for now what a relief .
