MONTEREY, Calif. — Medications effective at treating restless legs syndrome will be discussed by pharmacist Dharma Naidu at a talk in Monterey on January 19.

Naidu, a pharmacist at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula, will talk about common side effects and drug interactions at the Restless Legs Support Group, which is free and open to the public. Restless legs syndrome is a condition in which a person’s legs feel extremely uncomfortable, typically in the evenings while they are sitting or lying down, often disrupting sleep. Moving around can temporarily make the condition go away. Restless legs syndrome can begin at any age and generally worsens with age.

The meeting is from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, January 19 in the conference rooms at Community Hospital’s Ryan Ranch Outpatient Campus, 2 Upper Ragsdale Drive, Building D, in Monterey.  For more information, call 649-7210.
