Hello I have been suffering from RLS for about 10 years and I am a 56 year old male. I have used requip for about 7 years. It worked well until a couple months back and then my doctor raised my dose from 1mg to 2 mg. I hate the way the medication makes me feel and am looking for another option. I do not think my doctor knows much about the condition. I have thought about contacting a neurologist. Please help. Frikin miserable. I would wish this condition on anyone. It is horrible.
