I’m new here & glad to have found fellow RLS sufferers. I’ve been taking pramipexole for a few years now. I take 0.088mg x3 tabs a night each evening.
I also take amitrytline & topriomate for migraine.
I’m having a real flare up of RLS that’s affecting my arms too. I’m not sleeping at all well either.
I phoned the pharmacist to ask about timing of taking pramipexole. She suggested taking it later. I usually take it about 7pm as my legs are really jumpy from early evening.
We’ve just moved house & she said stress aggravates RLS.
I asked her if she knew of any supplements & she mentioned ‘vine extract’
Has anyone tried it?
Any suggestions on timings for taking the pramipexole?
Thanks in advance
If she had any knowledge of rls medications , she would have told you that aamitryptoline is an extremely powerful antagonist for rls. ( for most sufferers )
Get a safe alternative asap.

Print it out and show it to your pharmacist and doctors.
Know nothing about vine drinks.
Your dose of prami is at the high end- but is not your immediate concern.
