I too have suffered from restless legs for years. I was on Trazadonne for it for several years. Worked quite well at first then not as well but still afforded a decent night's sleep. The only problem was it left me feeling drugged even during the day.
So, weaned myself off of them and now use melatonin and licorice root supplement with cal/mag and I get good relief. Also, I have greatly reduced white sugar, white flour and basically all empty carbs from my diet.
Thirdly, a hot shower and a cup of chamomile tea about an hour before bed also help.
If I have a bout in the middle of the night, I immediately get up and do some housework or leg exercises until it subsides. I'm a single, Christian woman so the orgasm remedy is not currently an option! Hope this helps! Blessings to you all.
