    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?
    Thanks
