A 30-year-old male asked:

If RLS symptoms occur both during night and day, an extended release formulation is fine. Key is whether the proposed dose causes adverse side effects, and if so, the amount will need titration. Amongst common events includes drowsiness, nausea, blood pressure dropping on standing, dizziness, and impetuous inappropriate behavior. Discuss with doctor.
