  • From this study (2 days ago):

  • This drug does not help a person with social anxiety and or panic disorder. I was tired for the first couple of days but couldn't sleep due to restless leg. Now, after three weeks of taking it, I'm up til 2am. Does not help me sleep. I feel restless and tired/awake.

    Thomas Mofield on Sep, 1, 2014:

    The FDA has approved Ambien (Zolpidem) as an off label treatment for restless leg syndrome. Ambien is a sedative and is used to help you sleep.

    A word of caution: Although zolpidem is used as an off label treatment for restless leg, sometimes it will make little difference, and sometimes it can make it worse (this is rare though). Give it a shot. Hope you get some restful sleep.

    I sometimes get restless leg, the only thing that helps me (oddly enough) is to sleep with my feet uncovered. I don't know why this works, but it does for me.
