Hi there!

Unfortunately medications for RLS would not be suitable at this time. You could try taking plenty of water, avoiding sleeping at daytime and leg stretching exercises. If you still do not experience relief and the symptoms are severe, you may consider seeing a doctor to look for nutritional deficiencies and for appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

Thankyou, I do all of the above and take lots of vitamin and mineral supplements. I'm really struggling, getting an average of about two hours sleep per night. Is there anything else at all I could be doing to help myself?
