I've suffered from RLS for about 10 years. I've tried Requip and after about 1.5 years it stopped working. I switched to acupuncture and sleeping pills but that got very expensive. A friend of mine told me about CoQ10 and I have found that it works wonders. I take 100mg CoQ10 twice a day and have controlled my RLS symptoms 95% of the time. Taking the evening pill 'after' dinner seems to work best. Also, I've found that certain brands of CoQ10 work better than others. I have found that SpringValley works the best for me and other brands I've tried don't work at all.
