Answer

Education of patients with RLS and their families should focus on providing a better understanding of the disease and on emphasizing the importance of compliance for alleviating the symptoms. (See Treatment and Medication.)

For patient education information, see the Sleep Disorders Center, as well as Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS), Sleep Disorders in Women, and Sleep Disorders and Aging.
