I started taking requip a few weeks ago ! I have slowley increased as per instructions from 0.25mg and am now at 1mg per night ( im building up to 2mg per night ). I have been at 1mg now for 7 days and think i am starting to get side effects which are worrying.
My sleep improved when i first started but now the RLS is worse than ever, and is even affecting me through out the day. Today I have also suffered a blackout, and feel like it is going to happen again as my vision keeps going dark, and my head becomes very fuzzy.
Another, slightly wierd thing has started since i have started the requip !! The hair on my legs is slowley vanishing lol.. Every time i shave my legs, less and less hair is growing back. But its not just where i shave them ! I never shave above my knee, and that hair has completly gone. Instead I have very painfull, itcy red spots where the hair should be ( a bit like shaving rash, but i havent shaved there !? )
I have tried to get an appointment with my GP , Should i stop taking the requip to see if it is this causing these symptoms ?
Any advice welcome
