Re: Anyone switched to Lexapro? Skin crawl

Doug and all,
I, too, have experience the "skin crawl" feeling, which I used to call "feeling kicky," because of an uncontrollable urge to move my legs. I have interpreted it to be RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome) exacerbated by Lexapro. I have experienced RLS on and off since my first pregnancy, but never nightly like this. Is skin crawl feeling mostly in your legs and mostly while you are sitting or laying down? If so, it probably is drug-induced RLS. What helps me is stretching, walking around, taking muscle relaxants or valium, occasionally.
Maybe Lexapro causes this in me and something different in you all.
Hope this helps.
