  • Take it with some food to avoid nausea. If your legs have already started twitching, place a tablet under your tongue for faster absorption. This also helps mitigate possible nausea as it isn't going right into your stomach as a full pill

  • I discontinued ropinirole due to the requirement to take this drug every day, the common, and unpleasant, side effects and the lack of effectiveness. I also tried pramipexole, with similar effect. The only effective treatment I have found is small to moderate doses of opiods (hydrocodone, oxycodone, oral morphine). The latter also has the advantage of only needing to be taken when symptoms occur, but care must be taken to avoid dependence, particularly with morphine.

  • It worked well for 10 years, and then I reached the augmentation stage. The meds then proceeded to make my symptoms a lot worse, and gave me no relief. No sleep!
