Restless Leg Syndrome Home Remedy Comments

For me, sleeping on a bed with any metal in it (coils!) makes it very much worse. I've bought a new mattress and sleep a lot better.

Going off Paxil was for me, as for someone else on the forum, an important (if far from easy) step. I now take cipramil which still causes some akathisia (with these medications, that's often what it is - but it's a condition very similar to RSL, and sometimes indistinguishable from it), but considerably less.

Iron is important to take IF you have (slight) anemia. If you don't, beware; taking too much iron carries some grave health risks.

I am currently taking Paxil and have also been talking atarax. After reading several forums and websites, it turns out that both medications can greatly increase RLS symptoms. Go figure! :-(
