Pramipexole can help you.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your diagnosis of severe RLS, and noted that you have used Sinemet and Ropinirole without much success.

In your case, pramipexole tablets would be helpful.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
