After augmenting on Ropinerole, it has taken me six months to come off it.
My blood test showed a Ferritin level of 8 and thankfully I received an iron infusion. Having this, plus more recently with the help of Naproxen, I am totally off Ropinerole and only occasionally have bouts of a much milder form of RLS.
Last night I stopped Naproxen too, although it had already become less effective, sleep wise.
If I had severe RLS a few years ago, was prescribed Ropinerole, had good results with it until the augmentation set in , but am now free of Ropinerole and mostly of RLS too, where has it gone.
I mean if Ropinerole helped then it was stopped, what is preventing RLS returning?
And if it did return what would I need to ask the doctor for?
Should I ask for regular blood tests?
Thank you on this site for all the positive help and adviceI received last year.
I am so relieved to be free of RL, yet I feel it's return is only round the corner. I still get those physical sensations that herald an assault.
Thank you for any replies although I know this is all rather garbled.
