I was diagnosed in 2001. I was put on Meripex which worked great. I went through my entire savings account before I learned about side effects “OCG”. Dr. switched me to Requip.....same results. Had to stop. RLS SEVERE. I went to Stanford in Calif. Tried all these different meds that made me so sleepy that i could not function. Then Horizant came on line and it helped a lot but after a few years it didn’t. Now I am up every night walking around the house, sometimes for an hour before RLS subsides, then it’s hard to get back to sleep. Makes it hard to go to work every day. Complicated with very low back and hip pain.
