I think I know what caused my RLS - Stemetil/Anti sickness meds/Metoclopramide Hydrochloride

I was treated for sickness before my RLS started. I didn't experience anything that I recognised as RLS then, though it started soon after. However, a week ago, I was prescribed Metoclopramide and went into full blown RLS symptoms right away.

I've found this link.

It suggests it causes RLS.

Can any of you recall receiving anti-nausea meds prior to the onset of RLS?

It is very common for anti nausea meds to make RLS worse or even cause RLS. Zofran is the one universal safe one for us tot ake. The bad ones are on the "list to avoid". And, we usually do get our point across without the language.
