I have been taking .5 mg of Clonazepam for anxiety, and I have noticed that I have been having RLS in my arms and legs (one night it's on one side, another night it's on the other side). It started shortly after I started taking the Clonazepam. I thought that it was supposed to help RLS symptoms, but I guess it sometimes contributes to them :-P.
I sympathize with you about the RLS--it makes it really difficult to sleep at night since you have to keep stretching your limbs to get some relief :mad:.:mad: I have been looking up other ways to get relief, but I haven't found anything definitive yet *sigh*. I'm hoping to stop the Clonazepam soon since my pdoc doesn't like giving it to patients, and he's only using it as a stop gap while my body adjusts to the new medication I'm taking for anxiety and depression.
Hang in There :)
Interestingly enough, I started taking a supplement called COQ10 for another problem I was having not related to RLS, and I noticed after a month or so that the RLS symptoms in my right leg had stopped. Last week I was without my supplement for 3 days and the symptoms came back so I make sure to take my supplement each night with dinner. NatureMade makes a good supplement and Costo sells several supplements at a good price too. Worth looking into. ;)
