Agitation and restless legs after general anaesthetic?

RLS. You are on a number of drugs that play into this situation. The flecanide is a troublesome drug at times. I would also want to know about your electrolytes. Potassium is an important salt in this venue. Even swings within a 'normal' range can exacerbate RLS. Lastly, I would also review what anti-nausea drugs you were given. Rather than RLS you may have a side effect to a drug like compazine (prochlorperazine).
