Hi I have had PLMD for years which became RLS about 3 or 4 years ago when I got pregnant. Last year I started on ropinirole which was great but I suffered binge eating, compulsive spending, blocked nose and terrible augmentation. So this past month I reduced from 1.25mg to 0.5mg ropinirole and tonight I am trying pramipexole 0.88mg for the first time. I was wondering for those who have changed meds; did you start on the lowest of the new med or begin with an equivalent dosage??
It's been horrid reducing the ropinirole and I've been using clonazepam and codeine (swapping every other day) but still waking through the night. I hope this low dose of pramipexole will work
Thanks for your advice
