I was dx'd with RLS years ago after complaining about crawling/tingling sensations on my legs when I sit too long or lay down. It happens in the daytime too and the only time I don't feel it is when I'm walking around. At night I move my legs all over the bed, but I don't have the jerking movements some people describe. Anyway, I was put on lexapro for fibro and it made the RLS worse, and given valium at night just so I could sleep through the crawling 'bug's on my skin. I stopped taking the Lexapro about three months ago as it did nothing for fibro pain. (that's onother story...never just stop taking an SSRI) and just take valium at night. It helps. My doctor did not want me to take Requip or Mirapex...said the side effects were worse than the symptoms so I don't know if those drugs work or not. I have a friend with severe RLS and she takes Kolonopin and says it relieves all her symptoms. It sure is an annoying disorder!
