Yes med side effect with Requip! It caused me a horrible lack of strength.
If you take Requip HEBK2364 then see my post above in reply to sleepybeachoyster.
Requip caused me to be extremely weak and be unable to do things with exertion so I would suggest getting off Requip. Try using Neurontin instead although N gave me nighttime bladder problems, but supposedly that is rare.
