Ok if clonazepam doesn't agree with you then I'd try valium, it's another fantastic option. I'm actually glad the ropinirole didn't work out for me because of the nausea, the rebound RLS seems to get most people in the end on either mirapex or requip/repreve, and it sounds quite nasty if you're unlucky enough for it to happen to you.
I know 3 months isn't that long but I've had terrible withdrawals from SSRI's after that amount of time, everyone is different I suppose. It's funny you take xanax for it. I didn't know it was used for it. Saying that, xanax is the only benzo I had hell getting off. All the others were fine, but xanax did a number on me, which is a shame because it does have AD properties in my opinion, well for me it did anyway.
I'm currently on:
10mg Edronax (Reboxetine) 6mg AM 4mg PM
3x2mg of Rivotril (clonazepam)
75mg of Lamictal, soon to be 100mg
5mg Mogadon (nitrazepam) PRN
Still struggling with the depression big time at the moment but I'm prepared to give the Edronax-Lamictal combo a really good go. I'm running out of options and my pdoc mentioned Parnate last visit which I really don't want to try due to insomnia, which I have suffered from since my teens and OSA too. The list goes on.
Anyway, I hope you got this before you went to your doc. I'm in Australia so the time difference might work out well if you're in North America, I'd go the Valium 1st but that's between you and your doc, good luck.
PS. anyone out there who hasn't got RLS, I'd seriously consider a DA if you can stomach it.
