Abstract The use of levodopa, a drug commonly used to treat symptoms of Parkinson's disease, in the management of restless leg syndrome (RLS). A 2011 Cochrane review of levodopa for RLS reveals that the drug reduces symptom severity, improves sleep quality and quality of life, and improves periodic limb movement in sleep as compared to placebo.
