@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.
