I'm thinking of using this to help treat chronic insomnia. My sister says it gives her RLS. So looking for input from anyone. Thanks :-)
I have RLS Alot
And I have tried taking benadryl to help me sleep bc of it
It has not given me any relief
And has never been cause of it
My doctor told me RLS that is mild
Meaning not every night is a sign of low potassium
So I eat a banana every morning to help
Yes it does for me
Quinine and gabapentin also works very well for RLS. The benadryl just made me a little bit sleepy but not enough to keep me asleep all night.
Yes, it is possible, she may be allergic or taking too much, as withdrawal from it can cause this crazy making condition. I see this was posted last month. Any progress or solutions found, or is she still experiencing RLS symptoms?
Don't take Benadryl if you suffer from RLS. This includes all the pm medications bc they have benedryl in them.
I take sleep meds, and I cannot take Benadryl, because it GIVES me terrible restless legs. I now use an OTC product that contains only doxylamine succinate. It enables me to fall asleep without RLS.
With UNISOM, only the tablets contain doxylamine succinate, the sleepgels contain the diphenhygramine HCL that gives me RLS. I use Kirkland Sleep Aids and they have worked well for years. But you really have to read the label to see what you're getting.
