Hello everyone, I've been taking Ropinirole 0.25mg for 2 weeks for my rls. I have gradually increased my dose (now at 0.25mg x 3 per night). I haven't noticed any difference as yet and I have resorted (every 3 nights or so) to taking 2 x co-codamol 15/500mg at about 2 am as I am just desperate for sleep. After taking this I'm asleep within 30 minutes and get a good 7 hours rest.
My problem is that my doctor wants me to stop taking the co-codamol but it's the only thing that gives me any relief. I see my GP again in 2 weeks and am not sure what to expect from her as the next line of treatment.
I would love to hear any of your views/experiences. I am really worried that my GP will stop prescribing co-codamol as she doesn't agree with me taking it!
