Really helps my RLS but must make sure it is taken 2 to 3 hours before bed.
I was miserable until I got Requip. I still have problems during the day but I can at least sleep at night now.

Definitely helps with the slowness and the mood issues. Doesn't help with balance, freezing, cognitive, tremor.....

The Dr started me on a very low dose. I thought it was helping until I had a sleep study which showed I kicked and moved my legs 37 times an hour most of the night. I then saw the Dr again for an increase in dose. I now take 1mg each night and can go to 2mg if I need to. So far I have taken the 1mg . The other important thing I learned is to not wait till bedtime to take it. It wont help till about 0400. I now take it 13 hours before bed and it seems to work at bedtime.
