I am nearly 80 years old and have had RLS for at least 10 years. I have survived on Pramipexole for this time but have now gone into augmentation. I took my last Pramipexole pill three days ago having gradually reduced the dose and the Doctor started me on 300 mgs of Gabapentin the same day.
I am currently suffering very badly with little or no sleep but struggling on with my life which is fairly active. I don't know when the Gabapentin will kick in or the augmentation abate but I will beat this beast in the end.
