RLS is why IU use this drug. I take 4 times a day and now I am having trouble finding the name brand again. I went thru this a year ago when they switched me to a generic which will not work for me.

I'm a 44 year old female,and have had RLS for over 10 years. I have taken different medications for relief but over time I've had to have increases. My doctor prescribed Mirapex ER 1.5 and it works really well. Am currently trying for an increase, but am happy with the results. My RLS is pretty bad and couldn't imagine not having this medication.
