How long does it take for Requip to work?

Hi Everyone,
Do any of you know how long it takes for requip to work? It it the kind of thing that works a half hour later, or does it take days or weeks to work? Been off painkillers since December, but still having major rls problems at night...doc just prescribed Requip, but I forgot to ask him how long till it works!

I've been taking them for years for very mild Parkinson and they work great for me. I take 5mg. They should kick in about a night or two
