I know the use of magnesium supplements have been discussed before but hope this helps some of my fellow sufferers. Briefly, I have had RLS for many years but never sought medical help for the condition as I take various other medication (forAF).however it was getting progressively worse, keeping me awake for hours every night.
On research I discovered that several of my meds could deplete various vitamins and minerals. I started with a vitamin b complex and then, just over a month ago magnesium citrate. For a month now no RLS! My legs get a little twitchy late at night when I'm tired, but no more pacing the floor in the middle of the night. I've since found that vit b6 helps the body absorb magnesium. Hope this helps. Keep well folks.
