    Hi, I talked to my Dr.about this drug, she prescribed it but was unsure about what dose so she prescribed the lowest. She of course check in to it before she prescribed it. I am really good about being carefull about meds so she listens and is willing to help. But I need to know what doses some of you are taking. This dose is not enough for me but it does help. Hope you can help! thanks guys

    taking .125 for restless legs. It's not enough so I must use other medications with it to get any rest at all. My neurologist at Duke wanted me to take 1 mg and was trying to get me there gradually. I had a very bad reaction. My body started having uncontrollable jerks, nausea & depression and I was far from the maximum dose. My CFS/FM doctor at Hunter-Hopkins has me on the lower dosage and explained that some people with our disease can not take the same amount of medication and that lower is sometimes better. I wish I didn't have to take it at all but my RLS is bad.

    Wishing you well!
