Hello,

If your doctor optimized Mirapex dose and it is not relieving your RLS symptoms, you can ask about medicines called Sinemet or Requip.

Also, make sure your GP checks your ferritin level because low ferritin (below 50) can cause or worsen RLS.

Hope this helps.

Since this was posted under the Dr. Marshall's column I expected an answer for some wholistic food supplement that could be missisng. All my medical doctors naturally have already suggested. all manufactured medicines that are on the market, and done indepth ferritin levels. This info is not worth $14,.00.
Neurologist: Dr. Sophie :: Neurology, Neurologist (MD) replied 8 years ago
This site does not provide advice on holistic food supplements.

As an experienced neurologist I can tell you there is no supplement that is missing otherwise, believe me, I would be recommending it to my RLS patients.

Perhaps your payment is conditioned on existance of such supplement -- if so, I suggest you request a refund.

Best wishes.
