Brief Answer: There is no rationale in using silium. Detailed Answer: Hi, welcome to XXXXXXX Silium, (if you are not wrong) is a drug that belongs to calcium channel blocking group called flunarazine, used for migraine. There is no rationale in using it in Restless leg syndrome (RLS). In fact, there are case reports showing silium as a causative agent of RLS. If mirapex is not working, you have many other options like clonidine, gabapentin etc. Hence, i recommend you to request your doctor for a change of drug rather than trying an unproved and counterproductive drug. Hope i have addressed your question. Feel free to post your queries, if you have further. Bye.
