Reply To: Restless Leg
I had GBS that put me in a wheel chair for a month. Shortly after being able to walk again my right leg would occasionally spasm. Usually just as I was falling asleep. Docs tried several meds but they either interfered with others I was taking or the side effects were worse than the issue. As the spasm’s got worse, a doc put me on Ropinirole 1mg. That worked. Taken 30 minutes before bedtime and I was A-OK.
I wish the story ended there. The leg spasms migrated to the left leg. At one time I had issues with both. Now, years later the right leg is a happy camper and I am taking it for the left leg only. I am wondering if it will disappear in time like the right leg spasms did.
I am pretty happy with the Ropinirole
