Hi guys,I'm hoping some of you out there pacifying up and down tonight can give me some advice.i have posted a similar question before.ive had severe rls for around 12years.i started out on requip at a low dose,but,soon tirated to the maximum dose of 4mg (I know it's 2mg now) then I went on mirapexin and tirated to the max dose of that too.i went back to my gp who put me on 4mg extended release requip,that is now the max dose I know,but,it's just not quite enough,the only relief I can get it 2x4mg xl requip with half 1mg of immediate release requip.that works,but,I know the more I take the worse the augmentation.the answer I got here from most people,was,I need to wean off the dopamine with the help of tramadol or opioids of some form,but,after seeing my gp,there is no chance of getting them.im based in the uk.i had my go,make me an appointment with a neuroligest,but,he warned me that he may stop my tablets altogether,that I can't risk,so,I cancelled the appointment.can I up to 6mg of xl requip,or carry on with 4mg of xl requip,plus half of 1mg immediate requip.or am I asking for more trouble? Anyone got the answer? I know I need opioids to move forward,but,that's no chance I feel! Appriciate anyone's advice here.thanks
