PURPOSE: While several randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have studied the efficacy of individual treatment options for Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS), only a few have directly compared the various treatments to one another. We therefore sought to compare the relative efficacies of dopamine agonists (pramipexole, ropinirole, and rotigotine), gabapentin enacarbil, pre-gabalin, iron, and exercise training with each other, via a network meta-analysis, using International RLS scale (IRLS) scores as the primary endpoint.
