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?
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.
