Are there any alternative meds for restless legs syndrome?

Yes. Restless leg syndrome can be difficult to treat with conventional medicines alone. It can accompany other illnesses like kidney disease, diabetes, iron deficiency, and parkinson's. Massage and stress relief may help. Also, classical homeopathy can help with this. You'd need to consult with a trained homeopath to review your case & prescribe an effective remedy. http://www.homeopathyusa.org.

Not just meds. I would be wary of anyone who gave medication advice online without an evaluation to determine what is causing your problems. There are meds to help restless leg syndrome. As for anxiety and depression, don't fall into the trap of thinking that medication is the answer. Psychotherapy may be more helpful in the long run, or (depending on your symptoms) therapy + meds. Meds alone is not optimal care. Read more...
