Restless legs syndrome (RLS) and mirtazapine

RLS is unpredictable in my case. Naturally as long as I am on my feet no problem of course.
However soon has I sit down, seems it is when I am just getting comfortable, like in a
recliner or lay down it can start in, only one leg at time. If I get up and walk a bit it seems
to dissipate on occasion. A few years ago I did plenty of reading on RLS and my GP would NOT give me
what I read often will work, Diazapam — a Neurologist agreed it was helpful and it works
for me. I ONLY take it if I am having an episode. I don’t feel my case is severe in frequency, as all of us know, we can’t sleep with it.
Best wishes to all.

@pattitoo, I have to say meds work differently on different persons. What I find works well for my very aggrevated case of RLS is a simple thing. You can find it in your nearest pharmacy for a minimal fee. It is called restful leg. My son saw how much I suffered and he told me that it worked for him before, and I told him that I would try it. I have to admit I was skeptical at first, but I put 3 of them under my tongue, and within 15 minutes, I was fine. I have been using them now for over 5 years. Every time I start an episode of RLS, I head for my purse to get 2 to 3 tablets from the small tube they come in, and I place them under my tongue, and they melt quickly, and before you know it, I am back sitting on my couch enjoying the movie I just could not sit and watch 15 minutes before, without jumping up like a crazy person, and stretching my legs all over the place and apologizing to anyone who was in the room for interrupting them, with my dancing around like a clown.
