From this study (3 hours ago):
This drug does not help a person with social anxiety and or panic disorder. I was tired for the first couple of days but couldn't sleep due to restless leg. Now, after three weeks of taking it, I'm up til 2am. Does not help me sleep. I feel restless and tired/awake.
Thomas Mofield on Sep, 1, 2014:
The FDA has approved Ambien (Zolpidem) as an off label treatment for restless leg syndrome. Ambien is a sedative and is used to help you sleep.
A word of caution: Although zolpidem is used as an off label treatment for restless leg, sometimes it will make little difference, and sometimes it can make it worse (this is rare though). Give it a shot. Hope you get some restful sleep.
I sometimes get restless leg, the only thing that helps me (oddly enough) is to sleep with my feet uncovered. I don't know why this works, but it does for me.

Been incapacitated since xmas 2010, unable to work, life has been destroyed. Crawled away from abusive relationship, lost everything. Social Security is fighting me, it's disgusting. Doctors are wretched and worthless.

I was on topiramate for a month and half, and had horrible restless legs... and the idea of stabbing my legs with a knife seemed like a happier alternative. I would sit and cry in some anxiety state, because the need to move was overwhelming. It was horrible. But there is hope... I stopped the toperimate... stopped it... completely, cold turkey(remember I was only on it a month and half, 25 mg three times a day)... and in a week the restless craziness stopped. It's very rare... but shit is my luck, because i'm one of the 0.12% I guess. My doc put me on it, to give me a boost in weight loss... but nothing is worth the restless legs shit.

I unfortunately fit this profile to a t. Female, age 47, on topamax for 2 years for migraines, take cymbalta and now horrendous restless leg syndrome. It is maddening. I have been taking valium, which does seem to help somewhat. I stopped the topamax about a month ago, but the rls continues...any thoughts or suggestions?
