Have you tried Mirapex?

There are several recommended, most are habit forming so it's best to see your Dr and ask for something, try it for 2-3 weeks and if it doesn't work, go back and ask for something else. I had this for years as part of a multi-year-long bout with withdrawal. It finally went away on its own, but it was a hellish 3-years on and off. That's what I recommend.

There is a medication called Requip which is specific for Restless Leg Syndrome.

After 2 years, mine went away in 3 days after I started getting B12 shots. Ended up it was severe nerve damage from vitamin deficiency anemia.

I have been diagnosed with RLS for 15 years now. My neurologist prescribed Mirapex for me. It does help somewhat; you might want to suggest it to your doctor to see if it's a safe medicine for you to take. Good Luck. Lmrf

I have been driven crazy by rls as well!! It's crazy cause it doesn't seem like a big deal till you have it for days on end, with little to no sleep and the ability to just sit is beyond you. Anywho to your question I have found 2 things that helps me. First is a natural remedy featuring a mix of apple cider vinger and a few other herb. I had okay success with this but even more successful was a threaputic balm, like Bengay or icy hot, though I didn't use these brands. I liberally spread it on my arms and legs and it helped within minutes. Day 6 of suboxone withdrawl here and after 4 days with no sleep I was finally able to get some zzzz's. hope this helps good luck!

I have taken mirapex for years. I take it about 2.5 hours before bedtime. I could not live without it. Sometimes I take it during the day too. I take 0.5mg. Before bed. If I stay up too late after taking it, I feel slightly nauseated.
