von Manitius, Sigrid; Flügel, Dominique; Gievers Steinlein, Bettina; Schnelle, Martin; von Mandach, Ursula; Simões-Wüst, Ana Paula (2019). Bryophyllum pinnatum in the treatment of restless legs syndrome: A case series documented with polysomnography. Clinical Case Reports, 7(5):1012-1020.

Abstract

Restless legs syndrome may seriously affect patients' sleep and quality of life, but established pharmacological therapy can often have severe side effects. Therefore, new therapeutic approaches such as well-tolerated preparations from the medicinal plant should be considered as alternatives. Their sedative and spasmolytic properties might contribute to improve patients' condition.
