I've been to the doctor for quite some time trying to find some way to make living with RLS tolerable. Tried vitamin E, it helped a little. Tried a new nervous sysem drug called Neurontin, and got very little relief. My dr. recommended drinking tonic water in the evening. Tonic water contains Quinine which helps to relax the muscles. Tonic water on ice with a wedge of lime has become a staple for me and helps most of the time. I even drink the diet tonic water, about a one liter bottle a night.Quinine tablets can also be bought at a health food store where they sell homeopathic medicines which are all natural. Its worth a try.
