I have been taking Meripex for at least 10 years and I'm coming off of it slowly. I'm so excited because I was taking 2 milligrams everyday. I started taking Meripex extended .75 and it works. I stayed on the .75 milligram I guess for a couple of months and I started taking.50 lastnight. I was nervous about going down to .50 Meripex hoping I would be ok. At first my legs bothered me I guess it just lasted a couple of mins and this was before bed. I thought oh no this is not good but it went away and didn't bother me the rest of the night. I was able to lay down and went right to sleep. I'm so excited now I'm taking.50 in the regular Meripex for awhile then I will go down to .35 then drop taking it all together. I'm so excited because I feel like my body is adjusting to less and I'm not getting augmentation much at all it goes away very fast. I feel like this is giving me freedom from this medicine and it feels great!! I hope this for anyone who wants off of this medicine because of the side effects it has. I have more energy and I don't feel sick at night and have to lay down it's amazing. RLS isn't easy to have at all and I will exercise and eat right take my supplements and be med free soon. Another reason why I'm dropping this medicine is because it was not working and I felt like I was getting worse and I would be so bad at times I would walk the floors and it wouldn't stop even when I would walk. I'm not doing that anymore and I'm so grateful for that. 😊
