I've been diagnosed with nighttime RLS 3 years ago. for ~2 years I was being prescribed Mirapexin. It stopped working altogether half a year ago, when I was prescribed Lyrica (pregabalin). I could sleep well with Lyrica, but a horrible anxiety replaced the exhaustion-induced depression. It peaks in the morning and always weans off in the evening.
My doc said that he never heard about Lyrica causing these symptoms, but he prescribed gabapentin anyways, a very similar generic drug.
I can't take any of them anymore. I wonder if there are other alternatives for RLS medications?
Do you know of any?
