To the Editor: Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a common neurological movement disorder characterized by an unpleasant sensation in and the urge to move the legs, affecting approximately 10% of adults, but it is often underdiagnosed or misdiagnosed.1,2 There have been very few reports of RLS secondary to the use of antipsychotics like olanzapine,3,4 quetiapine,5 and clozapine.6 We report a case of clozapine-induced RLS, which improved with add-on aripiprazole.
