  • ROPITOR 2MG can make you feel drowsy or sleepy and it sometimes makes people fall asleep very suddenly without warning. If you could be affected, do not drive, do not operate machines

Tell your doctor if you are taking,

  • anti-depressant - fluvoxamine
  • medication for other mental health problems, for example sulpiride
  • metoclopramide, which is used to treat nausea and heartburn
  • HRT (hormone replacement therapy)
  • antibiotics - ciprofloxacin or enoxacin
  • any other drug which blocks the action of dopamine in the brain
  • vitamin K antagonists (used to reduce blood clotting) such as warfarin (coumadin)
  • Always take the medicine as prescribed by your doctor
  • The usual starting dose is 0.25 mg once a day. After two days, your doctor will probably increase your dose to 0.5 mg daily for the rest of the week. Then your doctor may gradually increase your dose over the next three weeks, up to a daily dose of 2 mg
  • If a 2mg daily dose does not improve your RLS symptoms enough, your doctor may gradually increase your dose some more, up to a maximum of 4 mg daily. After you have been taking ROPITOR 2MG for three months, your doctor may adjust your dose or advise you to stop taking it

Taking your dose of ROPITOR 2MG

  • Take ROPITOR 2MG once a day
  • Swallow the tablet whole, with a glass of water. Do not chew or crush the tablets
  • If you take it with food, you may be less likely to feel sick (nauseous)
  • ROPITOR 2MG is usually taken just before bedtime, but you can take it up to 3 hours before you go to bed

If you take more ROPITOR 2MG

  • If you take more ROPITOR 2MG than you should, contact a doctor immediately if you have any of the symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, dizziness (a spinning sensation), feeling drowsy, mental or physical tiredness, fainting, hallucinations

If you forget to take ROPITOR 2MG

  • Do not take extra tablets or a double dose to make up for a missed dose. Just take your next dose at the usual time
  • If you have missed your dose for more than a few days, ask your doctor for advice on how to start taking it again

If you stop taking ROPITOR 2MG

  • Do not stop taking ROPITOR 2MG without medical advice. Because if you suddenly stop taking ROPITOR 2MG, your Restless leg syndrome symptoms may quickly get much worse. A sudden stop could cause you to develop a medical condition called neuroleptic malignant syndrome which may represent a major health risk. The symptoms include: akinesia (loss of muscle movement), rigid muscles, fever, unstable blood pressure, tachycardia (increased heart rate), confusion, depressed level of consciousness (e.g. coma)

  • feeling dizzy or faint, especially when you stand up suddenly (this is caused by a drop in blood pressure)

  • falling asleep very suddenly without feeling sleepy first (sudden sleep onset episodes)
Additional Information

What is Restless legs syndrome (RLS) or Ekbom syndrome?

People with restless legs syndrome have an irresistible urge to move their legs, and sometimes their arms and other parts of their bodies. Usually, they have unpleasant sensations in their limbs sometimes described as ‘crawling’ or ‘bubbling’ - which can begin as soon as they sit or lie down and are relieved only by movement

  • Tell your doctor if you or your family/carer notices that you are developing urges or cravings to behave in ways that are unusual for you and you cannot resist the impulse, drive or temptation to carry out certain activities that could harm yourself or others. These are called impulse control disorders and can include behaviours such as addictive gambling, excessive eating or spending, an abnormally high sex drive or an increase in sexual thoughts or feelings. Your doctor may need to adjust or stop your dose
  • Keep this medicine out of reach of children
  • Do not use this medicine after the expiry date
  • Store at room temperature (15-25°C)
