    Comment:
    I was prescribed this medicine for restless leg syndrome. By the second or third night I could tell a difference. By the fourth day I had complete numbness in lips ,hands, knees, and both feet. I could not function properly! Since I stopped taking it, only took it 5 days, still have numbness in hands and feet. This is very uncomfortable and I think more should be put into the warning label.
