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 started out with .25 mg. now I'm up to or btw 4 and 5 mg. my RLS is really
bad. I sometimes have even kicked my wife while in bed.both legs jerk
And kick so bad ,that sometimes I'm up to 2:00 or 3:00.my Dr. Said she can't or shouldn't go higher then 5 mg.. Anybody out there got any ideas, other
then shooting myself!
The drug I'm using is Arequipa.
