I have been taking Ropinirole 1mg for 2 years since being diagnosed by a neurologist. Bad RLS most nights, including upper body. The medication helped but since May has been coming on earlier and earlier. Now I can expect it around 4pm. If I take 2 Tramadol 50mg asap, it seems to nip it in the bud PROVIDED I keep moving. Doesn't work if I don't. Still take the Ropinirole at night but GP says I have augmentation and wants me to move to Rotigone patches 1mg. She doesn't seem to have any idea on what pace to reduce my dose though. Have reduced by a half tablet for past week & noticed no difference. Would like advice please on whether to continue in this mode till I'm down to half a tablet per night then switch to the patch or what?
Thank you very much Am in the UK - just in case it's relevant
