Several options. Rls can be treated in a variety of ways. The first thing to check for is iron deficiency anemia. If you are iron deficient, then iron supplementation may be all you need to improve your RLS symptoms. Other classes of medications used include low doses of a narcotic, such as morphine, or Dopamine agonists such as Requip (ropinirole) or mirapex.
What are the side effects of taking benedryl, NyQuil, semantral, and meds for restless leg syndrome?
Pharmacist. Your pharmacist is very qualified to inform you of the side effects of these medications and instruct you about possible interactions and precautions when you take them.
My questions. Why are you taking all these medications? Restless leg syndrome does not respond to any of these, and the mainstay category which works includes dopamine agonists and Horizant. Recommend you get this entire program readjusted. See a neurologist.
NOT REALLY, NOT MUCH. New in this area although we are looking at already existing drugs to see if as a side effect they help rls.
New oldies. The latest to be approved is neupro (rotigotine). It is a patch of Dopamine agonist. The last one approved was Horizant (prodrug of gabapentin).
No. Not that you can count on.
I have restless leg syndrome, my primary Dr. Prescribed only 10 pills of ambien, (zolpidem) once every night before going to bed 5mg. Not working. Can I take an?
Rls. Restless leg syndrome is a diagnosis of exclusion which means all must be ruled out first. Restless leg is associated with iron deficiency anemia go back to your doctor and have your blood work done.
See below. Ambien (zolpidem) is NOT a proper drug for Restless Leg Syndrome, but there are several very effective medications which do work. See a neurologist, confirm your diagnosis, and get appropriate treatment.
