You do not need pills you need to move and stretch. The only thing that has ever stopped my legs from RLS is stretching. I will prop my foot up on something like a table and grab my foot and pull myself down towards my leg as far as I can go, while in this position I point and relax my foot quite a few times which stretches my calves. I do this on both sides, it stretches my lower back and legs and it stops my RLS almost immediately. I believe RLS has something to do with the muscles and nerves in the back and body that need to be stretched to release tension. If I get RLS all over my body which I sometimes do, then I will lye down on the floor and stretch my whole body using a series of different movements such as stretching my arms above my head and laying on my back and twisting my hips so that my knees touch the opposite side of the floor, stretching my neck etc. I will do this for about 15 minutes or so stretching all my body parts from finger tips to toes. I have also found that if I stretch, walk and exercise daily I do not have RLS at all. Trust me I have suffered with this for years and stretching will make it stop and you will be able to sleep. Don't poo poo this, try it and see.
