QUININE SULFATE 200MG WORKS EVERY TIME.IT TAKES 30 MINUTES TO RELIVE THE SYMPTOMS OF RLS.PHYSICIANS HAVE STOPPED PRESCRIBING QUININE FOR RLS BECAUSE THE FDA DOES NOT RECOGNIZE QUININE AS A TREATMENT FOR RLS.YOU CAN OBTAIN QUININE SULPHATE FROM PHARMACIES IN CANADA WITH YOUR DOCTOR'S PRESCRIPTION.THE PROBLEM WITH QUININE IS THAT AFTER A PERIOD OF TIME THE BODY GETS USED TO IT AND THE DOSE MUST BE INCREASED. THIS IS KNOWN AS 'AUGMENTATION'. THE PERIOD BETWEEN THE RLS SYMTOMS STARTS DECREASING.THERE IS ALSO THE PROBLEM THAT TOO MUCH QUININE MAY CAUSE CINCHONISM.QUININE HAS SIDE EFFECTS IN SOME PATIENTS. THERFORE IF YOU TAKE QUININE YOU MUST I REITERATE MUST BE FOLLOWED BY YOUR PHYSICIAN. ALL DRUGS TREATING RLS HAVE SIDE EFFECTS. PATIENTS SHOULD BE ALERT TO DETECT THE SIDE EFFECTS OF QUININE BECAUSE THEY MAY BE SERIOUS. ALWAYS START WITH THE LOWEST DOSE THAT HELPS.READ ABOUT RLS ON THE MAYO CLINIC SITE. READ ABOUT THE USES OF QUININE ON THE INTERNET SITES EXAMPLE RXLIST. THESE MEDICATIONS CAUSE RLS IN SUSCEPTIBLE PATIENTS:ALL ANTIHISTAMINES WITHOUT EXCEPTION.ANTIDEPRESANTS LIKE VALIUM ,XANAX ETC EVEN THOIUGH SOME INDIVIDUALS SAY THEY HELP.AVOID CAFFEIN, SODAS,CHOCOLATE, ALL ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES INCLUDING WINE AND BEER.EXERCING THE LEGS HELPS A LOT. PERFORM LEG SQUATS WHEN SYMPTOMS COME ON.DO 60 TO 100 SQUATS.IF THESE PROVE TOO MUCH THEN DO LESS REPETITIONS BUT INCREASE THE NUMBER OF SETS.RUNNING FOR 10 MINUTES ON A TREADMILL WILL ELIMINATE RLS FOR THAT NIGHT.HEAT HELPS. WARM (WOOLEN) LEGGINGS, STOCKINGS AND/OR WOOLEN PANTYHOSES LIKE SKI UNDERGARMENTS RELIVE SYMPTOMS. A GENERAL CHECK UP BY YOURDOCTOR SHOULD BE DONE TO ASCERTAIN ABSENCE OF ANY UNDERLYING CAUSE LIKE ANEMIAS DUE TO IRON AND /OR FOLIC ACID DEFICIENCIES.AVOID COFFEE,TEA,SODAS. SUBSTITUTE TEAS THAT DO NOT CONTAIN CAFFEIN LIKE CHAMOMILLE OR MINT. MASSAGES AND STRETCHING EXERCISES TO THE LOWER LIMBS HELP.LINIMENTS, CREAMS AND OINTMENTS THAT CONTAIN ANY INGREDIENT THAT ARE MILDLY RUBIFACIENT HELP.SOME CAN ONLY BE OBTAINED BY PRESCRIPTION.
RLS CANNOT BE CURED. IT IS A LIFELONG DISABLING CONDITION. BUT DO NOT DESPAIR IT CAN BE TREATED AND THE SYMPTOMS LESSENED.
