Some time ago I wrote to ask if anyone else had had a terrible skin allergy when using the patches. You may remember I told you that the whole of my upper body including arms and top of legs were covered in sores and blisters. My doctor was quite shocked when she first saw it and said I was obviously allergic to Dopamine. My skin is nicely healed now and I have invested in an electric massager and that with the tablets my doctor has given me (Temazepam) I am at last getting some sleep . I usually get off to sleep straight away but wake up about two or threee times with the usual twitching etc but I use the massager for about 6 minutes and I get off to sleep again. This is so much better than it ever used to be although the patches did work for me so it's unfortunate I can't use them. I know Temazepam is addictive but I'm afraid I don't care as long as they calm my legs down which they certainly seem to do. Good luck to you all out there.
