Of all the things I have tried, my best option is always a teeny bit of a DA with an opioid. Together they stop BOTH the RLS and the PLMS, allow me deep sleep, and keep me from too many side effects. Alone, neither one works as well or adds unwanted side effects and I am always tired. When I add some kratom, I fall asleep quickly and stay asleep for about 6-7 hours before I start having awakenings. Not perfect, but pretty good.
Finding that magic combo (or singular medication for some) is often difficult, though. Took me years.
