Post Lexapro & Restless Leg

Has anyone experience restless leg syndrome or too much energy with Lexapro?

I am taking 10 mg. At first it made me really tired but now I am starting to feel like I have too much energy and at night especially I feel like I have to keep stretching or moving my legs.

I am also going through menopause - so I don't know if some of these symptoms are from crazy hormones or the Lexapro.

Anyone have similar side effects?

I take 15mg. of Lexapro(I was taking 10).
I get a tingling sensation in my legs and arms sometimes,that I attribute to the Lexapro(not continuously).
I don't get energy spurts, I actually feel slower at times.
I also am in Menopause, and I get different symptoms from that also.
It can be quite confusing ,knowing the difference between Menopause sympstoms and symptoms from medication.
You're not alone!
