In brief: Med adjustment

You may need a higher dose of Requip (ropinirole) or may need to be switched to the long-acting form of this medication.
Other medications which also may be effective include Neurontin (gabapentin) and the long-acting version called horizant. Klonopin can also be effective. If not already done so, i would also recommend ruling out underlying nutritional and metabolic abnormalities which may be contributing.
