In episode 475, Mike and James invite Tina to talk about treatments for restless legs syndrome. in particular pramipexole. We find that pramipexole improves symptoms in ~20% of people over and above placebo and that low doses are just as good as higher doses. Who knew? In addition, you need to know that over a long period of time (> 1 year) that pramipexole can worsen restless syndrome so reassessment on a regular basis is key.
