I've just switched to pregabalin after 1800mg gabapentin per day didn't have much effect on my symptoms, currently on 75mg in the morning and 150mg at night and will increase gradually.
Jury is still out on whether I actually have rls or not, fits the criteria apart from not worse at night, legs just crap all the time really whenever I'm not moving. I managed to see a neurologist who suggested the gabapentin rather than DA, but gp has suggested trying pramipexole until the pregab has an effect. (Hospital suggested switch to pregab from gabapentin). Ferritin 110 at moment.
So - I tried the pramipexole, just low dose, for a couple of nights, but no effect on symptoms. Does this rule out rls?
Also-what dose of pregabalin are people on who find it works for daytime symptoms as well as night-time?
Thanks everyone x
