    I have had restless legs for about 30 years, so far this medication is helping my legs, I had taken it several years ago, had to change due to head and hand shaking. But it is the only medication left that is helping the legs, so far the shaking is not to bad. I also take premidone for the shaking, which helps.

    Before taking medication , I could lay awake 2 to 7 hours a night and maybe get 1 to 2 hours of sleep every night I hated to go to bed . Now after one month on the medication I easily sleep 6 hours to 8 per night . Only pill an hour before bed , and it has been life changing .

I take one pill, .25 mg, in mid afternoon and one in late evening.
