Have you consulted your doctor?

It may be worse, right now, if you suddenly stopped taking the Requip to switch to the Horizant.

If they are combined, they can have additive effects on each other, which could cause more severe central nervous system depression and psychomotor impairment, so your doctor has to take this under careful consideration and adjust the dosages accordingly.



In light of that, I wouldn't suggest combining them, without your doctor's approval.

I have been taking Requip for at least 10 years. It did help at first, but in the last two years my RLS is getting much worse. If I sit too long or lay down too long, my legs will start. Once they get started, stopping tem is almost impossible.

When I first started taking Requip, I would take one at night whenever I felt the episode was coming on. Lately I am taking four per day, two at a time and still get no relief.

I am at my wits end. I don't know what to do.
