From this study (5 months ago):
Prior to taking Symbicort for asthma, I was on Advair and have been for as long as its been around. 10+years? Is Symbicort attributable to RLS? I am currently doing iron infusions x 5 over a 2 week period for low level iron @40. I was down to low level 5 in Oct, hospitalized with iron infusions. Currently the RLS, foot cramps, and leg cramps keep me awake most of the night. I am lucky to get 4 hrs sleep. Thanks for the website!
