... Hi -- I do take the time released generic of Effexor XR which is to help even out my mood swings and some anxiety. I was told by the neurologist that 2 or 3 of the medications would not aggravate the RLS. I went in there with 3 in mind and Effexor was what I was told. Maybe Wellbutrin, it's the only other name I can remember. Hope you find some answers and feel better soon. (1 replies)
