Welcome to

Wild6Flower16, who just got restless legs when dropped 75 mg of Venlafaxine at the same time started Abilify, So don't know which is aggravating it. Shew is a month into it and everything in her life is getting backed up.

There is a chance that the venlafaxine could be responsible, but this is something to discuss with your doctor. Abilfy is supposed to be RLS friendly, but everyone reacts differently to these medications. Please post a note telling us a bit more about your RLS.

Welcome to

MisShelleyB, who is pretty sure she has RLS and wants to learn more, what her options are and how others have coped. As well as what her future might look like.

Take a look at "A Great Place to Start" at the top of this forum to start getting the answers that you are looking for. And please feel free to post a note with any questions that you have.

Welcome to Rob

Welcome to

Rob, who suffered from RLS for decades, and then his symptoms became severe. He lost the ability to sleep and RLS was beginning to ruin his life. He had tried several drugs, but finally found relief with 10mEq daily of potassium citrate, which relieved his symptoms entirely. He would like to talk to other people about this treatment.

Please post a note telling us a bit more about your RLS symptoms, what medications you tried and how you use the potassium citrate.

Welcome to Anitalb

Welcome to

Anitalb, who has had RLS for almost 30 years. It has been a nightmare finding what works. She has been on ropinorole for 30 years and recently it was changed to Gabapentin. The first dose was awful, several side affects. RLS has gotten worse for her and so she is looking for answers. Glad to see research is moving forward.

Please post a note telling us about your symptoms and where you expect your treatment to go from here. And feel free to ask any questions that you have.
