Very interesting. As a member of the International Willis Ekbom Disease Study Group (formerly the RLS Study Group) I was not familiar with this association. I am passing this on to other members of the study group.

  • From this study (8 months ago):

  • Have been on Gabapentin for years now. For the past 3-4 yrs, I have had a chronically elevated WBC without evidence of illness. WBCs run 10.5 to 13.0 consistently. Even when on antibiotics, has not dropped below 10.5. Am now wondering if this could be related to Gabapentin. The elevated WBCs have resulted in delay of care for back pain issues. At one time, I tried to get off of gabapentin - was titrating the dose(c my provider's permission). I noticed that the Restless Leg Syndrome that I had been experiencing had disappeared with the lower dose of Gabapentin. Unfortunately, the Meralgia Paresthetica synotoms increased & had to increase the Gabapentin back up. RLS came back with increased dose.
