I have suffered restless legs since a child, which I tolerated into my 40's before it became a significant problem. My most recent med was mirapex, which helped but I had side effects only slightly better than the original symptoms. I recently was advised by my chiropractor to take a good quality Magnesium Citrate from a health food or nutrition store. With some experimentation I have found a dose of 400 mg every morning with breakfast has given me near complete relief. I have been off mirapex for three months and have far better control. I do find if I work outdoors in the heat I need one additional capsule. I tried drug store magnesium oxide but had lesser results at double the dose.
