I have restless leg syndrome and would like to look at options other than ropinirole (sp) as a medication. It makes me sleepy.?

Many menu items. Eliminate caffeine, alcohol, nicotine. Check reversible causes [thyroid, low iron, other drugs like antidepressants, reglan, (metoclopramide) sleepy antihistamines like benadryl]. Stretch before bedtime. Other meds to try: cabergoline; pramipexole, gabapentin, pregabalin, clonidine, propranolol, iron [if your ferritin < 45], levodopa/carbidopa & carbamazepine. Wishing you restful sleep, no counting sheep!
Several options. Pramipexole works just as well as ropinirole. If taken near bedtime, sleepiness is not usually a problem with either. Topiramate might be another option, as might gabapentin, though both could also cause sleepiness. Clonazepam may cause more sleepiness than ropinirole.
Clonazepam. Clonazepam is approved for rls. You want to make sure there are not reversible causes of the RLS symptoms including other medications.
