reported in the journal Sleep that "Levodopa with decarboxylase inhibitors, and the dopaminergic agonists pergolide, pramipexole, and ropinirole are effective in the treatment of RLS and PLMD." Despite the promise that dopamine augmenting compounds can reduce the symptoms of RLS, it should be mentioned that their use for RLS is currently only approved for adults; data are lacking with regards to their use for RLS in pediatric populations and during pregnancy.
