I get worse RLS when I try to take antihistamines to sleep. Also when I take clonidine too late in the day or before bed. it wears off in 3 hours or so and the RLS is brutal. whether thats related to DA or NE I have no idea.
Dont drugs that promote excess serotonin tend to blunt dopamine as well? I would have to do a lot of digging to rememeber where I picked that up from and get you a good citation. dont have the energy =(
The drugs used for RLS are dopamine agonists or gabapentin. Havent tried any of those yet Im on enough drugs as it is.
Usually getting out of bed and doing 30-40 squats is enough to get the RLS to subside enough to sleep.
