Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months 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.
From this study (1 year ago):
Frustrated with weight gain, fatigue and overall pain. I want to know which is causing weight gain. I also feel horrible most of the time.
From this study (2 years ago):
I'm miserable with this and I don't even know where to start as the symptom has developed into something incredibly disruptive to my life, especially sleep
