Hi all, I have been taking Pramipexole in the evening for about 6 years now, rising from 1 tablet to 2. The 2 tablets kept me quite well most nights but for some unknown reason every now and then the RLS would start up in the evening and I would take another pill hoping for it to take effect in time for me to get some sleep. I then read that magnesium deficiency might be a factor and a couple of months ago bought myself some high strength (375mg) magnesium and have really noticed the difference. Not only do I very rarely get the RLS symptoms but I am sleeping wonderfully! When I have started to feel the 'twitch' I have remembered that i haven't taken the magnesium tablet. I appreciate that i do not get the RLS as bad as some, as I don't get pain, but it really was very disruptive and I felt like I never slept more than a couple of hours a night so it is a real relief to me to get some lovely sleep. Wanting to swat up again about magnesium i found this site which might help others -www.nutritionbreakthroughs.com/.../restlesslegsyndrome_magnesiu... I'm really sorry if you have all tried this already and found it no help, but if there is one person out there who it will help it will be worth it. I just hope the situation keeps up for me! All the best to you all, Pat
