Hi everyone. I've had RLS for 5 years now. Ropinerole helped me at first but now RLS is starting mid-afternoon and the ropinerole side effects are becoming unbearable. Social life in the evenings is impossible and sleep a thing of the past. I take sleeping tablets but they help only a little. I have tried exercises and magnesium to little avail. My GP tells me that ropinerole is the only available treatment available. I would like to see a neurologist but I doubt that would be granted. Any suggestions please.
