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?
