I've suffered from rls since around 16, I'm 57 now. I was 40 when I finally found a doctor who knew about it, she prescribed klonapin and it was a miracle drug! 30 minutes before bed, it would start. ( I would still like to know how my legs knew what time I was going to bed) it wasn't every night, so took as needed.
it's been a few years since I've been bothered with it, but it's back. the doctors that I have now won't prescribe controlled substances, so she is giving me this. after reading all the posts here, I'm wondering if you can take as needed especially since I don't suffer every night.
I'm picking up the prescription tomorrow and will ask the pharmacist, just trying to get as much information as I can.
thanks, susan
