Which medication?  There isn't anything specific for RLS.  It is very much what suits one person won't another.

"Dopamine agonists are the most commonly used medicines to treat RLS. There are various types and brands. Dopamine agonists in effect top up a low level of dopamine which is thought to be lacking in people with RLS. Dopamine agonist medicines used to treat RLS include pramipexole, ropinirole and rotigotine. There is a good chance that symptoms will go or greatly reduce in severity if you take one of these medicines."

from the link I posted.

I obviously didn't get that far  ::)  ........ due to the mix I already swallow daily I would be reluctant to add another medication - I have had enough side-effects over the years  :-\  ........ and I would need to have it proven that lack of dopamine is my problem ......... as the condition does improve when I eat bananas daily so I think for me it's lack of potassium.  However, bananas make my mouth burn  :(

Yep.  But the RLS began way before I had allergic rhinitis.  That developed in the mid-1970s.  You are aMine of Information  ;D

Why and how?  All these apparent 'links' - is there any research to verify them?

I wasn't troubled last night  ::) but can't think what I have eaten in the last 3-4 days that would help ........

I wasn't thinking about RLS CLKD - I was wondering about your burning mouth from the bananas. It shows that you have developed an allergy and is linked to pollen allergy.
