HelloWhat is your question exactly?I am Dr. Thomas, double board certified US doctor.Requip is one choice, but there are a number of others, to be individualized by your doctor. Requip is in the same class of the drug you are already on. You might need something in a different class.See this mayo clinic page for drug choiceshttp://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/restless-legs-syndrome/basics/treatment/con-20031101You have to make sure you don't have iron deficiency. This can be a contributing factor.Have your iron levels checked. OK, so that is an initial answer….Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
