I have been diagnosed with RLS and was given Requip .25 mg to help stop the jerking. Has anyone else taken this? Does it mess with any of the meds for diabetes?

I am on 2 mg in the evening and 4 mg of long acting requip at noon. It has not interfered with my diabetes meds. Don't be surprised if you have to up your dose. It takes quite a while of trial and error to find the right dosage so your RLS is under control. Good luck and keep me informed.

I'm taking .50 of requip 3xs per day and has it made a world of difference. I can sleep without my legs wanting to crawl off my body when i try to sleep. I hope it works as good for you.
