Ask Dr. Gott 5/1

DEAR DR. GOTT: I am a 66-year-old woman. Three years ago, my RLS started bothering me to the extent that I had to take medication. I take one Requip tablet before I go to bed. Over a period of several months, I've noticed that my long-term memory is failing. Is it possible that this is a side effect of Requip? If so, can you suggest another treatment for RLS that is effective but less harmful and can be obtained without prescription?

My cholesterol level was so low that I tested out in the rare category. I went to an allegedly reputable eye surgeon, who told me I had cysts.
