Why NEUPRO may be right for you
If you have moderate-to-severe primary RLS and are experiencing uncomfortable sensations anytime you're trying to sleep, relax, or just sit still, NEUPRO® (rotigotine transdermal system) may be right for you. NEUPRO is a medication with the proven potential for RLS symptom relief. It is a patch that delivers the dopamine agonist rotigotine through the skin. With NEUPRO, your RLS symptoms are treated with one patch, once a day.

- RLS discomfort in arms and legs
- Need to move around because of RLS symptoms
- Relief of RLS discomfort from moving around
- Sleep disturbance due to RLS symptoms
- Tiredness or sleepiness during the day due to RLS symptoms
- Severity of RLS as a whole

Is RLS affecting your life?
Some people have to live their lives around their RLS symptoms. Do you?
Skin reactions may occur at the site where you apply NEUPRO. Tell your doctor if you get a rash, redness, swelling, or itching that will not go away.
NEUPRO can cause nausea, vomiting, indigestion, or upset stomach, which may occur more frequently when you first start using the patch.
NEUPRO is a small, thin patch that comes in three doses: 1 mg, 2 mg, and 3 mg.
Your doctor should start you on a low dose of NEUPRO and may change the dose weekly until you are taking the right amount of medicine to control your symptoms.
