Re: how long effects iron supplements to work

I was on iron tablets for another reason and found my restless legs were cured! It didnt take long, I just know I suddennly stopped having restless legs. Now Im not on iron pills and its back!! arrggg Ive had some blood tests done to see if i need iron again, even if i dont, im going to go on it as its the only thing that has ever helped my rls.

Re: how long effects iron supplements to work

It's the only thing that helps me, too. Nothing would help until one doctor randomly suggested I could maybe try Fosfree, which has iron and calcium. The calcium alone did nothing. I take 2 tablets every night and if I run out for even 3-4 days, the restlessness returns.
