Would coenzyme Q10 at 100 mg help make fasiculations stop and also restless legs stop that I get during my period? No other health problems.

Not likely, but....: Co-Q 10 is important in energy metabolism and a strong anti-oxidant. Do not drink alcohol before bedtime or taking any menstrual cramp medications that may contain antihistamine-like ingredients, as these can make things worse. Medications like tramadol and gabapentin in low dose have shown promise in treating RLS, as do dopamine agonists. Http://www. Medscape. Com/viewarticle/405870_7 ...Read more

Not to my knowledge: In fact, the whole history of supplements -- even antioxidants and omega 3's -- preventing cancer, prolonging life, or improving it quality is almost without exception, over the past forty years, a history of tremendous disappointment.
