Jan 30, 2011 (Started Jun 13, 1991)

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for restless feeling in legs)
  • Side effects
    Mild
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 0.5 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I can get to sllep sooner as I do not have the restlessness or discomfort in my legs and because of the mildly sedative effect of the drug. I was concerned about taking it everyday but find my overall quality of sleep is much better than it was. I am not sure but I think this must be a factor. Perhaps this has helped me cope with daily emotions as well.
