I suffer from peridiodic limb movement disorder for which I take four 0.088mg pramipexole tabs each night. Also, I get RLS, particularly during the day and early evening if I stay still in one place for any great length of time. Thus, long car or public transport journeys have been a nightmare.
The wonderful Neupro patch seems a great boon to many RLS sufferers as it covers you for 24 hour periods which pramipexole etc. don't.
On Saturday the Tpebop family went on a coach trip to Brugge (Bruges in French), the so-called Venice of the North, in Belgium. I was faced with a agonising RLS nightmare. Based on previous adventures and advice from this site, I took two tabs about an hour before leaving and another a few hours later. So far fine, hardly any RLS but how long would it last? It lasted all the day. Early evening I took one more and then another a few hours later (it was a very long journey home). The result was minor kicking which disturbed my fitfull sleeping. Also, I didn't overdose i.e. 5 tabs is meant to be the max daily dose for RLS.
The point of all this? How do other RLSers, who use non-24 hour cover meds fare on long days in confined spaces?
PS The Tpebop family had a loverly time in Brugge: canal boating, waffle and chocolate eating and beer drinking...lots of lace too!
All the best, Tpebop, Kent, Britain.
