AAAACCCKKKK!!! I started taking Requip about 2 weeks ago for RLS and not only did it not help, it has given me insomnia. I stopped taking it 3 nights ago, but I am still not sleeping and it has gotten so bad that I am ready to absolutely come flying out of my skin! The "need" to move, stretch, and relieve this anxiety in my legs is overwhelming to the point of making me squirm and feel sick to my stomach. My neurologist called a new prescription into the pharmacy today and I will pick it up in the morning, I am praying that it helps - this is awful. Thanks for listening to me whine, I wasn't sure where else to go at 1:00 am.
