Nocturnal eating/drinking syndrome with restless legs syndrome caused by neuroleptics improved by Yi-Gan San add-on treatment: a case report.

Nocturnal eating/drinking syndrome is characterized by awakening in the middle of the night, getting out of bed, and consuming large quantities of food quickly and uncontrollably. We report a middle-aged male patient with schizophrenia who had nocturnal eating/drinking syndrome with restless legs syndrome whose condition improved with the administration of the herbal medicine Yi-Gan San (Yokukan-San in Japanese).
