I take several meds for depression. i cannot stop the meds, due to very severe depression.
My husband had that pretty bad with Effexor and also ringing in his ears and a tic of
quietly smacking his lips. I don't know if Effexor contributes the most but my husband
had to stop taking it. It did not, however do that to me. I have treatment resistant depression also and have to change meds a lot. My doctor has just started combining
meds so good luck, I know how frustrating and debilitating this is.
You should talk to your GP about RLS; the typical medications for its treatment are very effective. Additionally, these drugs will likely help your depression. I'm sure you have researched into the syndrome and treatment a good bit by now, so I won't go on and on.
As a side-question, however--you wrote that you are on multiple drugs for depression. How many and which drugs are you taking for depression?
