Does anyone have any patients who have tried the neupro (rotigotine) patch for rls and would like to share good and bad feed back

Sleep doc: Check with a highly educated sleep doc about restless leg syndrome. Neupro (rotigotine) patch sounds rather odd! placebo is probably similar. Discuss with your doc!

Neupro (rotigotine): Neupro (rotigotine) allows for an alternative route of administration, especially for patients who do not like to take pills. It is fairly new, but seems to be effective in treating RLS in my patients. It can cause skin irritation at the site of use. Otherwise fairly similar to Requip and mirapex. Hope that helps in answering your question!
