Ended in ER with allergic rash over body that felt like prickly heat. Did not help with jerking motion of upper body during night. Horrible experience.

Took one dose at 5PM Extreme side effects next day - could not walk on my own, kept falling asleep, slurred my words when trying to converse. Will never use this drug again!

The Directions for this say to take at about 5pm, I take it about 2 hours before I want to go to bed (since that is how long until it make me sleepy). If I take it at bedtime I will either oversleep or be very groggy in the morning.

The RLS restless legs that I had was unbearable...I dreaded each evening as it would begin and be relentless. Horizant began to work almost immediately..I am even sleeping better and uncontrollable movements are practically nonexistent. Yes, I was groggy the first week but have acclimated to that. Honestly, this has been like a miracle for me.
