I've suffered from RLS for 10 years and have been taking pramipexole to relieve the symptoms. My dosage has increaed from 0.088mg per day to 0.7mg per day.
Like so many people on the site, my symptoms have got worse over time. More severe cramps and muscle pain; same synptoms in my arms; earlier occurrence; increasingly poor sleep patterns.
I assume this is augmentation. Having read many of the posts from some very helpful people, I have decided I must try and wean myself off pramipexole. I realise this won't be easy so i'm seeking advice on how I should tackle this.
How quickly can I safely reduce my dosage?
What other medication should I take to help me through this process? Tramadol?
And how long will it take before I notice any improvements?
And what medications would you recommend to replace pramipexole?
Clearly I'll nbeed to speak to my GP about this. But would be very grateful for any advice
