We don't always get the right med the first time. That is why he said he would change it to something else. This is normal.
It sounds like you have restless leg syndrome. I use to have that too. It could be from the med or from something else. I wouldn't blame the medication right away. But I was the same way. I didn't get the side effects until a month or so into the drug. It took me many tries before I found what was right for me. Now I am doing well.
You can switch medications or switch doctors. A psychiatrist would probably be the best bet as was posted above by Lululya. They are the best at finding the right meds for us. But don't expect the next one to completely work too. It may not. It may take a few tries before you find what is right for you.
I know that you are upset about
this, but don't blame the doc. He was just trying the first step. There could be many more. Or the next med might be the ticket. If you are lucky. Try not to get discouraged. You will find what is right for you. Just don't give up.
