    I haven't seen the report yet, but it's worth checking out!

    Well, I just saw it. It does clarify that RLS really exists, and that the Requip ad campaign made people more aware and more likely to seek treatment for this condition.

    However,it seems to imply that Requip is the only treatment available. That's not so. Mirapex works just as well, and probably is cheaper.

    And no, I have no financial interest in Mirapex! I do have RLS and use Mirapex. Luckily, my doctor gives me samples :)

    If you want to read the report, here the website address:
