Amazing relief of my severe restless leg syndrome; however, on 2-3 occasions the med did not work until I had taken at least 3 tablets which then made me nauseated and dizzy. One time did not work at all and had to deal with RLS.

I was given this for restless leg syndrome and started having hallucinations, trouble sleeping, swollen legs and falling a lot without knowing why. Wouldn't recommend it for anyone who lives alone.
