I have been told since my teenage years that I have RLS and it has gotten progressively worse over the years (I'm now 60) I posted recently about my nightmare experience of Mirapexin and luckily I have a very patient GiP who has given me all possible help to conquer the resulting depression. I am now back at work and taking 50mg Sertraline (reduced from 100mg) every morning and 100mg of Clonazepam at bedtime. I have found my restless legs markedly improved during the early evening and am even sleeping at night but my husband says my legs and arms still jerk uncontrollably in my sleep. I have never felt like ants were crawling under my skin or had any pain.as described by other sufferers - my legs (and arms) just go into jerking spasms and the only cure is to keep moving. Does anyone think I may have this Involuntary limb movement disorder instead of RLS and that's why the clonazepam is helping?
