No, a U.S. physician cannot write a prescription for quinine in Canada. In Canada, it is required by law that a prescription be signed by a Canadian physician. If your U.S. doctor has written a prescription, the only way you could get it filled would be to consult with a Canadian doctor and get them to sign it.

Is it true that quinine water prevents restless leg syndrome?

It's the quinine itself that helps RLS (whether its in capsules or some other form, not just quinine water). Quinine has been used for years (since WW II) for nocturnal leg cramps. It helps by vasodilation (relaxes smooth muscle which causes increased blood flow). It can certainly help with RLS, but may not completely alleviate the signs and symptons. On the other hand it may for some people. Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely that someone with a true case of RLS would see relief with quinine water. There is simply not enough quinine in the water to do any good. The only prescription drug left on the market that contains quinine is a product called "Qualaquin." It has 324mg of quinine sulfate. That's plenty to do the trick, but it is very expensive and a doctor must write for it. If you have insurance give it a try.
