: Has anyone found relief from RLS using quinine(tonic water) I find that 1 litre per day at bed time relieves the problem most of the time.Please reply.
: Thank You,

My mother and I have BOTH found that a couple of ounces of tonic water before retiring makes a tremendous difference in minimizing night leg cramps, but want to know WHY tonic water (ie. quinine) is more effective than the various medications given me by doctors. Can anyone point us to medical or pharmaceutical literature about quinine relieving leg cramps? Thanks, Lynn
