Hi.. I wonder if anyone can help, My husband has been diagnosed with RLS, he was taking .25mg of Adartrel per night for a week but then the burning started to come through and he started not being able to sleep again.. the doctor has upped his dose ..50mg.. he has taken this for 2 x nights but has had NO sleep.. the burning is worse than ever and moved from his shins to also effect his feet arms and shoulders... can anyone tell me if this will settle down or should we go back to .25mg ??... he takes the pill at night about an hour before he is ready for bed... Also can he take a mild sleeping pill to help with his sleep ?.. how long does RLS last for... it came on more a less over night... will it go the same way ?.. Thanks
