Restless Leg Syndrome board


I just began taking Mirapex and I have been taking Lexapro also for OCD. I've been told that Lexapro can aggrevate RLS, so I was wondering if anyone knows of any other SSRIs which would not aggrevate the RLS.
I have been using merapex for 2 years now and my restless leg movement stopped after going to a C-Pap machine for sleep apnea. When I started taking Lexapro my restless leg movement returned with a vingance, however, at the same time I broke my leg so I am not sure which is causing the problem. All I know is that I had start taking merapex again after 1 year hiatus.

I, too, would be interested if any body out there has information about Lexapro and restless leg syndrome. :confused:
