Hi, I've just been put on 88 micrograms pramipexole - one every night.
I know the warnings (thanks)
I've only been on it 2 nights, and so far no help at all with my RLS.
I've always suffered but it only used to be once every couple of months. Then I shattered my leg and ankle in a fall, had surgery and metal in my leg and now I get in terrible every single night.
The only thing that helps is tramadol.
My question is... how long should it take until the pramipexole starts to work? (I'm having to take it with tramadol at the moment, and I'm not sure when to stop the tramadol...)
And any advice for me regarding the meds? I'm already aware of the gambling/compulsive issues it can cause...
Thanks in advance!
When I took pramipexole it worked straight away - it was like a miracle. My rls may not have been quite so severe as you describe however. What dose are you on? Maybe it is just not enough (obviously with pramipexole you want the lowest dose possible but no point taking it if it is no use).
