My wife uses CBD tincture to treat one of the symptoms of her MS and it works better for her than any prescription medication that she has ever been given. I have tried it for my RLS and the only benefit that I have seen is that it works great on the rare occasions where my RLS causes an anxiety or panic attack. However, it does nothing for either my movement or insomnia problems.

I'm finding it hard to locate much that supports CBD in the RLS treatment. Fortunately I don't seem to be troubled with anxiety or panic attacks.

Medicare does cover Viagra. Ask your MD for the generic called Revatio. It's generic Sildnafil (Viagra) and cost me $56 U.S.D. for 90 20 mg pills at the local pharmacy. It is typically prescribed for heart problems as it's a vasodilator, but two of the 20 mg. It stopped the "twitching" when I took it an hour before bed.

Hi Newyorktim. You will find lots of helpful information and folks that really understand restless legs syndrome here. Welcome to the RLS community.

I don't quite understand what your comment is about, are you saying that Viagra helps RLS?

If that is true, how would that fit into the research a few months/year ago about the oxygen in the blood being different for RLS patients? Does the blood oxygen change when it is taken?
