> I also have this kind of effect from effexor--restless motoric itchiness, leg bouncing, and night time RLS (irrepressable need to move legs, kick legs, etc.--a general pain in the butt that makes it impossible to go to sleep). I worked with my pdoc to tweak the doses of my antidepressants, lowering the effexor and raising the serzone, which helped, especially during the daytime. For night time, my pdoc prescribed clonopin for the leg restlessness, although I rarely use it because it makes it hard for me to get up in the morning. He had also said there was a dopamine agonist that could help. I have also found limiting caffeine to help.

Hey Choc!
That must drive you NUTS if your husband has this!
Thanks for the feedback.
I plan to have a talk w/my pdoc next month.
