Hyland's Restful Legs

Postby Janet Buschert » Tue Mar 12, 2019 10:55 pm

Hi Friends. This is available over the counter at our stores. When I looked up the ingredients many looked like they are independently scary and potentially dangerous. Does anyone know anything more about this medication and its safety? Thank you.

It isn't really a medication. It is homeopathic and because they are diluted to such an extent, I cannot see it harming anyone.

Over 1800 studies show that homeopathy doesn't work, however. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-ne ... 180954534/

a few people have been desperate enough to try it. To my knowledge, no one here has even said it helped.

If you read the fine print on the Hylands package, you will see a disclaimer that says that it is not a treatment for RLS. Of course, this is buried in the fine print so that they can sell it to unsuspecting RLS patients who are desperate for relief.

Before my RLS got so bad, I used to use this. It usually helped some. Now that the RLS has gotten much worse it doesn't usually work well at all.

I tried it. At first it seemed to help a little. Then not at all. I still have a 1/2 used bottle somewhere.

I tried this too. It seemed to help for a while and then it didn't. Possibly a placebo effect.
