In some cases, this medicine can also be used for treating RLS or restless legs syndrome. The medication works by restoring balance of dopamine in your brain, the lack of which is responsible for causing Parkinson’s disease.

For treating Parkinson’s disease, the treatment will start with Requip 0.25mg thrice a day. After 4 weeks, the dosage can be increased by Requip 1.5mg per day per week. For the treatment of RLS, the starting dose is Requip 0.25mg once a day, to be taken 1-3 hours before sleeping. After 2 days, it can be increased to Requip 0.5mg per day.
