After starting RLS at age 17, it has recently become very severe, and the pramipexole I have taken for less than a year has stopped working and the RLS is REALLY bad. I am not sure whether this is caused by the pramipexole, or whether it is just because my RLS is worse. DOes anyone know how I can tell the difference? If it is the drug, will the effect subside? the doc has now started me on ropinerol - which is yet to work !
