Unfortunately, yes.

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
