My mother has had rls for a few years. it took us and the doctor about 3 years to diagnose rls. Dr started her on amitritiptiline which didn't suit my mum. He then tried Ropinerole which was great to start off with but now around 6 month later it has stopped working and is making things worse.
She is now refusing to take it at all.
First night she slept well without Ropinerole but last few nights have been horrendous. only 1 or 2 hours sleep. this is killing her and so so difficult
