thanks judy, I've been taking Cogentin for about 3 weeks now, sometimes it helps with the RLS, and sometimes it doesn't. I have to say, though, that the RLS seems to be improving very much. I was recently taken off Seroquel (about 2 months ago) and I was thinking it may have caused some agitation-don't know. I was also taken off cold turkey of Klonopin by a doctor who I feel was wrong in doing so, and that may have had even more to do with the Reslestness. But overall, this Cogentin is a seemingly good med for me to take at bedtime. It helps me sleep, and I don't seem to get any major, bothersome side effects from it. **You said it had a low-profile of side effects for you? What, if any, side effects did you get, can you remember? I have been on Klonopin for about 3 years and I still take 2mg-I haven't seemed to built up tolerance yet-is that what they call it???? But, you're right, I don't think the Klonopin is helping much with these restless legs when they do get bad, so that's where the Cogentin comes in.


thanks again judy for your reply.

> I've taken it for EPS from risperdal (an AP) and it worked quite well with a low side-effect profile. I think it's worth a shot for your RLS, especially since the klonopin isn't helping.
> Good luck, judy
