I was diagnosed with Restless legs syndrome I take I mg requip daily but my question is for how long should I take this drug despite requip is for some extent helpful? In other words do I need to take this drug for life?
Requip treats the symptoms of moderate to severe "Primary restless legs syndrome", but the medication can't make the condition go away. It should be taken constantly as prescribed because if you stop, restless legs syndrome is most likely to come back, or you may have to start from the beginning taking the lowest dose and starting all over again.
