In brief: Other medicines

The term "best" is based on your tolerance as well as other objective measures.
Carbamezapine, Neurontin (gabapentin) as well as benzodiazepenes are useful for this condition.

In brief: Check serum Ferritin

Low iron can aggravate rls.
Also if you have apnea you are likely on CPAP and if on CPAP you could try opiates. Most patients on opiates who have apnea whether central or obstructive do well with cpap.
