Restless legs syndrome is an actual condition, though I'm not sure how effective the medication is for it. It's named for what it is - an irresistable urge to move your legs. It gets worse at night, and can lead to sleep deprivation.
I usually scoff at drug commercials. There was one, the one that talks about a vaccine for cervical cancer, that I thought wasn't worthless. But the ones for viagra and others make me laugh. I mean, is there anybody now who doesn't know what that pill does? Do they really need to keep advertising it?
