Restless Leg Syndrome in Sclero Forums (MAIN) Posted November 16, 2010 Hi Pur, I take generic Mirapex for my RLS. No side effects whatsoever and it does a great job but takes about an hour to go to work. :emoticon-insomnia: My RLS started with the indescribable creeping crawly feeling that I needed to tighten my muscles to make it feel better and now has turned into uncontrollable jerks and involuntary movements. Before I went to meds I tried the soap thing - does not work - too bad :( Good luck to your cousin! Hope she finds relief soon but I wouldn't be afraid of the meds.
