We report on seven cases of restless legs syndrome (RLS) in patients treated with quetiapine. Small doses (50-250 mg at bedtime) provoked RLS in a dose-dependent way. Most patients suffered from an affective disorder and all were treated concomitantly with antidepressants. A search of the literature revealed a further nine cases of RLS concerning quetiapine, also afflicting only patients with affective disorders. Quetiapine seems to carry a special risk for RLS in this sort of patient. Possible causes for this concurrence are discussed.
