Restless Legs Syndrome Home > Requip
Requip is a medication that is commonly used for treating Parkinson's disease and restless legs syndrome (RLS). It helps increase the amount of dopamine in your brain to trick your nervous system into thinking that it has more than it really does. By doing this, muscles loosen up and become less stiff and rigid. As a result, Requip helps reduce symptoms for people with Parkinson's disease and RLS.
