Restless Leg Syndrome


Restless Leg




To stop nighttime twitching, shaking and kicking of the legs, try taking some niacin. Doses vary from person to person, ranging anywhere from a low 50-100 mg to a high 500 mg. By trial and experience, you learn just how much to take. While doing so, you may experience a warm flushing sensation, described elsewhere on this website (a site search for “niacin flush” will bring up the material for you). I take just enough to gently flush. (Personally, I like that warm feeling, and at bedtime, it settles me right out.) One of several user reports:

“Just thought I'd let you know another great use for Niacin -- restless leg syndrome. My husband has never been officially diagnosed, but has a lot of trouble sleeping. This year when the work season started again, he began kicking me all night. It got so bad that I wasn't going to be able to sleep in the same room. Every few seconds, his legs would move and it was driving me up the wall. I persuaded my husband to try Niacin with Vitamin C right before bedtime. Works like a charm, in fact when he missed his vitamins the other night, I could tell within minutes. What a great solution to a problem that so many suffer with!”

My own family members with the problem have tried this, and they no longer have restless legs.
