    I've been having 'issues' for a little while now, so I finally broke down and started taking the little blue pill.
    You probably know what I'm talking about.

    My wife was very pleased, to say the least. I had a great night!

    That Restless Leg Syndrome has really been bad, and that little blue pill let me sleep all night long. Didn't even have sex last night. I woke up rested and refreshed - so did my wife. Thanks for your advice, TNTreehugger!

    Thought you were talking about Aleve when I saw the title.

    An older friend of mine whom I worked with (71) told me his doctor said, those you use it often the longest have the least issues. Those who go months on end have issues earlier.

    The old "use it or lose it" adage seems to apply here.

    Based on the widescreen family photos however, I assume this is a recent issue?

    I see some of you didn't read my post very carefully. This wasn't about viagra - this was about a pill I started taking for Restless Leg Syndrome - something that keeps me from sleeping well. :laugh::laugh::laugh:
    I have no need of Viagra. Believe me, there's no sign of slowing down in that department. :drinkingcoffee:

    This is a chainsaw forum, reading comprehension is not high on the priority list. Glad the pill got you some rest! RLS runs in my family!

    I thought the RLS relief was a nice side effect from the viagra. Viagra has been called the little blue pill for a long time. Lol

    Aleve PM also works to stop RLS. It also helps relieve aching back, leg, and arm muscles caused by firewood processing and delivery. I'm surprised a doctor's prescription is not required to buy it.

    I have RLS and this is what I take at bedtime and it works for me it's called pramipexole dihydrochloride 1mg the other name is Mirapex. This has been the best I have found and have no side effects. Can take 3 a day if needed

    Prescription strength Naproxen, yes

    I can't stand the stuff as it's too hard on my stomach & in prescription doses makes me jittery

    I'd look into whatever herbal/alternative medicines are available

    Pramipexole is what I have. It is a tiny pill and I am starting with half a pill. It amazes me that something so small can have such a result. (Yes, I know I will likely get a ‘that’s what your wife says’ comment.) :laugh:

    No side effects that I have noticed.
