Controlling Restless Leg Syndrome

Imagine whenever you are not moving; your legs are uncomfortable and throbbing.

It is a problem many live with.

It is called restless leg syndrome.

Beverly Cato can now sit, relax and read; something she had not been able to do for years.

Restless leg syndrome affects up to 10% of the population.

Oral medications were available in the past, but new research shows a patch with the drug, rotigotine is a better choice.

Dr. Steven Cohen stated, “Not everyone has gotten 100 percent relief, but everyone that I’ve seen has gotten pretty good relief. The major benefit is you put it on and forget it.”

It is working for Beverly.

Every morning she puts on her patch so she can live life without restless legs.
