I have had more severe RLS since last March, which is possibly a Long-Covid symptom. So far I have had my iron/ferritin tested. My ferritin was on 25 initially but has gone up to 45 after taking oral iron supplement which I still continue to take. My RSL has not improved much yet though. It is still cyclical, worse around ovulation and pre-menstruation.
Meds wise I have so far only used pain killers, alternating Co-codamol (which works best but I am nervous of taking daily) and Paracetamol interspersed with Ibuprofen on the non-Co-Codamol nights (which doesn't work so well and I don't get much sleep).
The GP wants me to try Ropinirole next. Could you please let me know about your experiences with this drug and if you think this would be a good 'first' drug to try for RLS. Thanks.
