DAO tablets worked for me

I had RLS, it was fairly mild although unpleasant when I had it, and was accompanied by other symptoms, especially sudden excessive tiredness. It seemed to come on in the evening after eating or drinking certain things, like crisps, alcohol, cheese etc. For me, after many years of trying different things, it turned out to be related to histamine instolerance, and when I dealt with that using DAO tablets (daosin, daofood etc with food), the RLS went away. Just posting this on the off chance it helps anyone else. Good luck in resolving your issues to anyone experiencing this condition.

Have never heard of these tablets...Available over the counter or on prescription? I am trying slow release iron tablets, folic acid, copper bracelets etc....And reducing sugary drinks and alcohol. Noticed a slight improvement but no actual cure.

Yes, the histamine connection is important. Thanks for reminding us.

Thanks for sharing. I've just looked dao tablets up on t'internet.I admit I've never heard of them before but it's very interesting. I always overreact to insect bites etc so it's another thing in the arsenal of weapons against the dreaded RLS that may help. I'll give it a go. Did it work instantly or did it take some time?

Thanks for this reminder - I just spent a sleepless night after realizing I started a collagen supplement along with fermented foods and it might just be the histamine intolerance. Good article here... factvsfitness.com/dao-defic...

That's interesting that it helped you as I am just starting a DAO supplement to deal with food and drink related triggers. I am trying a non-animal product. Thanks for your post.
