    Yes it is very common. If you are immobile or, down from surgery it can cause a blood clot in your leg. It can eventually get to your lungs. If so your dead. I had a neighbor die of that. He was confined to a wheelchair. Requip is a good drug for treatment because it thins out your blood. I believe that people with heart or blood problems should take a regime of Aspirin along with Requip.
