RLS and Anti Depressants

Anyone know if there are any anti depressants that works well on anxiety, but won't aggravate my RLS?

I have tried zoloft, prozac, paxil, lexapro/cypralex, cymbalta, effexor, and they all bothered me (even at low doses). I tried zoloft most recently at 25mg and its day 4 andmy legs are really bothering me. Last I tried cypralex /lexapro 10mg (smallest dose) and same thing

Any feedback is much appreciated
Thanks

Hi -- I do take the time released generic of Effexor XR which is to help even out my mood swings and some anxiety. I was told by the neurologist that 2 or 3 of the medications would not aggravate the RLS. I went in there with 3 in mind and Effexor was what I was told. Maybe Wellbutrin, it's the only other name I can remember.
Hope you find some answers and feel better soon.
