    Hi I was wondering has anyone had any problems with the blue dye in Xanax causing restless legs? I have canged from 2 mg down to the 1mg. The 1 mgs are the blue ones and have notice that my resless legs have come back since I changed. Go back to the doctor in a month and need to figure out if I need to change back or not.
    Thanks Charleen

    You might try cutting the 2 mg. in half and see if it makes any difference....just a thought.

    Hope you figure it out. I don't take Xanax...Klonipen and Ativan are what I have.

    Mine are pink and shaped like a football. I've never had any problems with RLS. Being that it comes in generic, I wonder if you are just sensitive to the dye used in the 1 mg. tab. Try cutting the 2 in half and see if you still have the same problems.

    Good luck!
