  • Sever cramps in calves, hands, feet, thighs that last up to 45 min. Once relaxes can start again within a minute. Sometimes recurring over an 8 hour period.


  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I think, but I'm not sure, that I am having problems with Focalin Xr (Novartis) - 15MG and Gabepentin combination. I have experience constant moving of my feet and hands, nerviouness, and a very jittery feeling. I take a lot of medication due to a lot of chronic medical conditions. I'm hope you can take a look at them and see if I might need to make some changes. Thank you so much!
