The psychopharmacologist that prescribes and monitors my Effexor XR recently gave me a trial of Requip, with a potential prescription if it works well. This came about because, although I've had restless legs syndrome in the past and don't have that sensation now, my husband complained that I twitched and jerked a lot when I am sleeping. (I also grind my teeth and bite my tongue.) This medication (on label) is for Parkinson's and RLS, but I recently read that there has been a trial w/fibro patients that suggested it may also help for that. Is anyone else taking this? I put off starting it because the potential side effects freaked me out (hallucinations, sleepiness, etc.), and I am going up to the Atlanta FCC -- a 6-hour drive that I am doing by myself -- and I wasn't confident dealing with potential side effects during the trip. Well, my situation was not improving, so two nights ago, I started the trial pack at the lowest dose. Last night, I slept for 7 1/2 hours straight. Hmm. I wasn't woken up by the pain of biting my tongue. I still am worried about side effects, but so far, on the low dose, I have not had any. (I think I'm at 0.25, and the dosing can go up to 4 mg). Unfortunately, like many here, I tend to be oversensitive to meds. If anyone has any experiences, could you post them here? Is anyone else here taking this?
