Once you've ruled out underlying causes then medications used to treat restless leg syndrome include carbidopa-levodopa, opioids (such as propoxyphene) or tramadol (Ultram) for intermittent symptoms, carbamazepine, clonazepam, diazepam, triazolam, temazepam, baclofen, bromocriptine, and clonidine. Also, recently, gabapentin (Neurontin) has been found helpful. The FDA has now approved ropinirole (Requip) and pramipexole (Mirapex) for the treatment of restless leg syndrome. Other treatments that have been helpful for some patients include avoiding caffeine, warm/cold baths, electric nerve stimulation, oral magnesium, and acupuncture.(sourced from Medicinenet.com)
Have you heard about the supplement MX 5-HTP before? If not, it promotes sleep help and support for sleep disorders.. and relief from the effects of sleep deprivation. My mom try it before and it really works on her with no side effects occured.
