Restless Legs after stopping Lipitor

kristinmills posted:
Last year I stopped taking Lipitor, to try and have a baby. Since that time I have had terrible restless legs, did a sleep study to diagnosis. It wasn't until recently that I correlated the stopping of lipitor and the rls. I know most people experience muscle aches/cramps as a side effect, however I was wondering if anyone experienced the opposite?

Put a bar of soap like Irish Spring or any other soap except Ivory under your sheets at the foot of the bed. It works for me for restless leg and very sore knees I don't have either anymore. Just besure to change the bar of soap out every six months or so.

Give it a week or two and before you know it those symtoms will be gone. I put it under the bottom or fitted sheet right where my feet rest in the bed usually. Don't put it between the sheets it's annoying.

Don't ask me why it works but thank god it does.
