I was just on my way to bed it is now 2 in the morning and I have just taken my medication for the night  and remembered the pain I used to suffer from restless leg syndrome so I thought I'd put on the medication that was given to me by the doctor that stopped it instantly, of course, you would have to speak to your doctor about it but I guarantee it works for me hope this helps anybody with the dreadful restless leg syndrome thank you Pramipexole [Removed by moderator - exact quantity] tablets

    Welcome to the community @JohnTerry :) Thanks for joining. It's great to have you with us.

    I'm really glad that you managed to find a medication that works for you. Has that helped you to sleep better at night?

    Just to let you know, I've removed the quantity of medication from your post. This is just to be on the safe side, as we don't allow medical advice here on the community. You can read our house rules here. As you've said, it's important that people speak to their doctor if they're struggling with restless leg syndrome, but it's good to know that there are treatment options out there.

    I saw a documentary about people who cannot control this condition, (horrible for them) so I'm pleased for you and, as you suggest, at least it gives other people a heads up of a name they could research and see their g/p about
