Seroquel and Restless Leg Syndrome
Posted 23 December 2007 - 05:39 AM
My question is this: Is there anything you can do to make RLS go away?? If I start to feel my depression coming back , i want to increase the ser. again, but the rls is horrible. BTW, I was on 100 mg. twice a day. I started my increase to 100 at night and that is when the RLS started. When i took taht dose in the day , still had rls. Thank you for any responses.

The only thing I can think of is adding Cogentin to the mix or a med that specifically addresses RLS symptoms. I know they suck as I had them on other AAPs.
Not much help but commiserating nonetheless.
Rx: Seroquel 400mg, haloperidol 5mg prn and clonazepam 2mg. Non MI meds: Lipitor 20mg.

Today i talked with pdoc and we think that in addition to RLS i probably just have Akathasia, you now the restlessness and agitation that goes with the psych drugs. pdoc also said that the requip may be "activating " the TD.so we are tying Mirapex instead. It may not work and I may have to stop the seroquel.I am afraid b/c i really need the seroquel. I can't even take my zyprea anymore b/c instead of calming me - it agitates me.
any suggestions are welcome.

I take 50 mg of Benadryl every night to stop any akathasia with my meds which included at one time Seroquel. Good luck!
Did you try benadryl? I got RLS-like Akathasia from Haldol and it helped since it was really only a problem while I was trying to sleep anyway. The Akathasia eventually progressed to include really bad anxiety so I dropped it.

I take 300mgs of Seroquel at night and if I don't go to sleep within an hour of taking I get RLS. It's not fun! I'm going to try taking Benadryl to see if that helps.
