I have suffered with RLS for the last 40 years to varying degrees. I have tried various "cures", these range from quinine tablets to clomazapin. Three years ago I persuaded my doctor to let me try Ropinirole, at first this worked well, not perfect, but better. The only trouble is that the dose has to be increased as time goes by. Nearly 2 years ago I tried the machine marketed in the UK as "Circulation Booster". I tried it on its own without taking Ropinirole, not too bad a result at first but gradually the symptoms returned so I am now taking Ropinirole 0.5 mg (I was taking 1 mg on its own) and using the "Circulation Booster" for half an hour each night. Again the combination is not a "cure" but generally I am getting a good night's sleep - so far I am happy but watch this space!
