Are you currently on any other medications? If not, RLS resulting from taking an SSRI could indicate that your are a poor metabolizer of this drug and should address this with your Dr. asap. There are medications that address RLS ... muscle relaxers, some benzodiazepines, and dopaminergic agonists like Requip all should help symptomatically, but it could be you don't tolerate Lexapro and should be switched to another SSRI, SNRI, or SSNRI. Psychiatry and acronyms are like peas and carrots. Talk to your Dr. and be well.
