restless leg treatment with levodopa

I have heard a lot speak of restless leg issues. I came across this while looking into levodopa for tremor.
... The patient was treated with 500 mg prednisolone intravenously over 5 days without any clinical effect. However, a single dose of 100 mg levodopa plus benserazide led to a dramatic improvement of the restless legs syndrome. The levodopa treatment was continued and resulted in complete relief.
