thanks to all who replied to my first ever blog. i have been taking dhc on and off for 5 years and have experienced no withdrawal symptoms when i stop them. i also suffer from arthritis and frozen shoulder both of which cause a lot of pain which is not alleviated by dhc. i take 1dhc am and 1pm and have found it so effective that i have had to stop taking them to make sure the rls has not disappeared as quickly as began. both mirepexine and ropinarole did not help even though i was prescribed the maximum recommended dose and i found i developed an insatiable appetite and an addiction to shopping (for the most impractical things) and am still paying off credit card from my last try at ropinarole. i have not increased the dosage of dhc in 5 years and it is only when i do not take them that i realise how much worse the rls has become now happening am as well as pm and spreading to lower arms.
