Finally, an antidote to TV drug ads
This first installment concerns an interesting class of medications that are approved to treat something called "restless leg syndrome." That condition may sound fanciful, but it's a real problem. Something like 3 percent of Americans suffer from RLS, which is characterized by an uncontrollable impulse to keep moving your legs even when you are trying to go to sleep -- which obviously could make sleep difficult.

My advice for television viewing? Watch it with the volume muted. The absurdity, if by some chance you haven't already noticed it, becomes immediately apparent.
