Where exactly is this info going? To a group of Dr.'s I hope! I've come to the conclusion that there needs to be at least 2 groups of meds given to RLS patients so that we can alternate them.I've kinda been doing that with the help of Medicine Mexico and some old drugs I had here. It seems to be hel...
