Restless Leg Syndrome – Treatment

October 30, 2020


Treatment for restless leg syndrome depends on what causes it in the first place. Sometimes we literally just give back iron because the patient is iron deficient. Sometimes we give back magnesium potassium, even vitamin D. We make sure that thyroid hormone and kidney functions optimal, but sometimes we use medications and other times exercise and control of lifestyle like caffeine and alcohol, which can sometimes exacerbate restless leg syndrome. Getting too much exercise can make it worse and getting not enough can also make it worse. At times we also know certain medications, exacerbate, restless leg syndrome, such as anti-histamines and anti-psychotic medications, even anti-nausea medications. So sometimes we take away those medications and that will treat restless leg syndrome.
