Well, I'm totally off Ropinirole since I dropped the last 0.25mg almost a week ago. I started at 3mg, then went to 2, then 1, then 0.5, then 0.25, now to 0. Each drop was both challenging, but exciting. It was challenging because my nights were more difficult, but exciting because the augmentation was clearly decreasing. Now, every night over the last week I've been able to track my improved sleep on my sleep app tied to my Apple Watch. I still clearly have RLS, and my legs twitch pretty severely approximately on a one minute cycle. But I fall asleep quickly, and I can sleep through it. And now the RLS diminishes greatly in the second half of the night, and the daytime symptoms have dropped off practically altogether. I haven't tried going to a show yet, but yesterday I drove in a car for about 8 hours and managed it just fine.
I've been sleeping in a different bed from my wife due to the resumption of the jerking in my legs as I've been weaning off Ropinirole, which is sub-optimal. So I may try Kratom to see if that can control the RLS in a way that doesn't cause augmentation or other negative effects. Anyone else's experience is welcome.
