Potassium Citrate

Here you can share your experiences with substances that are ingested, inhaled, or otherwise consumed for the purpose of relieving RLS, other than prescription medications. For example, herbal remedies, nutritional supplements, diet, kratom, and marijuana (for now) should be discussed here. Tell others of successes, failures, side effects, and any known research on these substances. [Posts on these subjects created prior to 2009 are in the Physical Treatments forum.]

I tried Potassium Citrate, and it didn't do a thing for my restless legs. However, it did make my urine more alkaline, which for an 80 year old mean less trips to the bathroom at night. Now that I finished my experiment with potassium citrate for restless legs, I found I could reduce it to half the amount and still have pH of 7.0 which worked.
Fascinating. And, great for you!
