Answer

Dopamine agonists

Dopamine agonists may be effective for the treatment of RLS.

Pramipexole (Mirapex)

Pramipexole is a nonergot dopamine agonist with specificity for the D2 dopamine receptor, but it also has been shown to bind to D3 and D4 receptors and may stimulate dopamine activity on nerves of the striatum and substantia nigra.
