I have started the Neupro patch for RLS. I have Fibro, Migraines and RLS. So something is almost always bothering me. The Neupro was prescribed because my stomach has been so upset by other medications ( Gabapentin and Ropinirole). I would puke almost every day from those meds in the morning. I was hoping because I didn't have to ingest the Neupro it would work. I have went from 6/8 hours of sleep waking up numerous times, to 3 HOURS OF SLEEP awake for hours. This medication has made me almost an insomniac. And guess what....the less I sleep the more my waking hours have pain because of my fibo or I will get a migraine. I wish I could say it worked for me, but it didn't. My sleep doctor suggested going up in a dose....I am not sure how that would help while the pharmacist suggested stopping it.
