I have been on Neupro for four weeks now (1mg then 2mg). It is hard for me to assess how well it is working because my main issue is PLMS ie when I am asleep! I do believe it is reducing the leg movements as I am no longer having these when awake and have much less cramping in my calves in the morning. It hasn't reduced the leg pain I experience during the night but taking codeine is helping with this.
However, my sleep remains disturbed and unrefreshing. So I don't feel any better as I continue to be sleepy and fatigued during the day. But I guess this could be a side effect of Neupro? In which case there is no point taking it. I am finding it really hard to work out what is the condition, what is side effects, and what is or isn't helping.
So any advice on what might help with the sleep side? I have in the past tried Zopiclone and Trazodone, both of which made me sleepy but didn't improve my sleep and made me groggy the next day.
Thank you as always for your suggestions.
