Hey I found out about something I though was interesting. A drug that was initially on the market a couple years ago for treating Parkinson's Disease, goes by the name "Requip," generic name is ropiniril, is now FDA approved for treatment of restless leg syndrome.
In case anyone doesn't know, restless leg syndrome (a dubious condition if you ask me - apologies to anyone who actually has it) is traditionally treated with a small bedtime dose of some kind of opiate, usually oxycodone or even methadone. I once though about trying to convince an MD that I had this condition, would be a good way to get scripted up for good dope on a maintenance basis.
Well, this relatively new drug drug ropiniril is both a dopamine agonist/stimulant type thing (hence the efficacy in treatment of PD) and also is a partial opiate receptor agonist, according to the prescribing info, available at -
It's not controlled, which makes it interesting to me.
