Pharmacist Analysis

In most situations, clinically significant interactions between homeopathic products and prescription or over-the-counter medications are extremely unlikely.

Homeopathic medications, which utilize the principle of 'like cures like', are often highly diluted substances. These dilutions are typically so high that the final remedy contains only a tiny amount of the original active ingredient, if any at all.

In theory, because the concentration of the active ingredient is so low, homeopathic preparations are unlikely to interact with other medications in the body.

This is certainly the case with Hyland's Restful Legs, with all the ingredients diluted at potencies of 6X or 12X. A potency of 6X means that the original substance has been diluted by a factor of 10^6, or one part in a million (i.e.,  for every million parts of the solution, there is one part of the original substance).

It is important to note that not all homeopathic remedies are free of potential drug interactions as some use very low dilutions (which is often the case with zinc-containing products).

Nevertheless, there are no known drug interactions between Hyland's Restful Legs and other medications. It is also thought to be safe to take along with medications to help sleep, like Benadryl, melatonin, and NyQuil, which are commonly used with the product to help sleep.


Hyland's Restless Legs Overview

Hyland's Restless Legs Hyland's Restless Legs (the actual product name is Hyland's Restful Legs but it is more commonly known as 'restless legs') is a homeopathic product that is marketed to 'calm agitated legs so you can rest.' As a homeopathic product, Restul Legs is based on the principle of "like cures like" or 'law of similars', meaning that a substance that causes symptoms in a healthy person can be used in a diluted form to treat similar symptoms (such as an onion preparation being used to treat watery eyes and a runny nose). A good example of this is that Restful Legs contain Arsenicum Album 12X, a highly diluted form of arsenic. There is both a daytime version of Hyland's Restless Legs and a nighttime version (PM).
