    i just don't know what i am going to do my docotr prescribed my the gnerica form of it...

    so i guess maybe i should ask for mirapex instead, plus this helps with sleep and the fibromyalgia...

    I take mirapex for RLS. I take four, each one is 0.5mg, just before I go to bed, I have found out that if I wait and take it after the RLS acts up then I am miserable for a couple of hours. Its like an itch you can't scratch!Take four before it acts up then you will get a better nites sleep.

    Hi Jodie

    This may be a dumb question but is rls restless leg syndrome? Can you tell me what that is?

    Is sinemet something that they prescribe to patients for that?

    Sorry to ask it is just that I have problems with my legs and I have FM, do a lot of people with FM have rls?
