Discussions that mention lexapro

Restless Leg Syndrome board


I don't know how long it will last but I have at least found some temporary relief. After extensive reading, I quit taking Lexapro - anti depressants supposedly make RLS worse? I also started taking .5 mg of requip about 4:30 pm. For the last 2 days, I have been able to sit at the table to eat, watch TV and read the paper - hallelujah! About 8:30 I take 1 mg of requip and sleep pretty well.

For a long time, my legs absolutely drove me nuts from the time I got home from work. I could not be still and it drove me nuts.

My MD even told me to experiment as RLS is not an exact science. Good luck to all of us!
But for me the depression is just as bad as the 'RLS' so I will stay on the Lexapro!!
