Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Changes from baseline in RLS symptom severity using the International Restless Leg Group Rating Scale (IRLS) total score for efficacy assessment [ Time Frame: up to 12 weeks ]
  2. The proportion of subjects responding to treatment using the Clinical Global Impression - Improvement (CGI-I) scale for efficacy assessment [ Time Frame: up to 12 weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Subjective Sleep Questionnaire (SSQ - Subjective WASO) [ Time Frame: up to 12 weeks ]
  2. RLS Next Day Impact (RLS-NDI) [ Time Frame: up to 12 weeks ]
  3. Limb pain rating using a numerical rating scale (Limb Pain - NRS) [ Time Frame: up to 12 weeks ]
  4. Clinical Global Impressions - Severity (CGI-S) [ Time Frame: up to 12 weeks ]
  5. Medical Outcomes Study - Sleep Scale (MOS - SS) [ Time Frame: up to 12 weeks ]
  6. Impact on Life (IRLS symptom impact sub-score) [ Time Frame: up to 12 weeks ]
  7. RLS-Quality of Life Scale (RLS-QoL) [ Time Frame: up to 12 weeks ]
  8. Medical Outcomes Study - Short Form 36 (SF-36) [ Time Frame: up to 12 weeks ]
  9. Work Productivity and Activity Impairment - Specific Health Problem (WPAI-SHP) [ Time Frame: up to 12 weeks ]
  10. Profile of Mood States (POMS) [ Time Frame: up to 12 weeks ]
  11. Adverse events from spontaneous reports will be monitored throughout the trial and summarized by treatment group [ Time Frame: up to 12 weeks ]
  12. Sheehan Suicidality Tracking Scale (S-STS) will be utilized to assess the risk of suicide [ Time Frame: up to 12 weeks ]
  13. Changes in RLS symptoms following the discontinuation of study drug at the end of treatment will be evaluated by collection of the IRLS scores at the end of the drug taper period at Week 13 [ Time Frame: week 13 ]
