Comment from: Happy Sleeper, 65-74 on Treatment for 2-5 years (Patient) Published: August 30

I am taking mirapex for restless legs. Sleepless nights for many years. After knee replacement surgery, I kicked it out of place in the recovery room. (Back to surgery!) Woke up with brace on my leg and taking mirapex for the first time. Have been taking three times a day; recently cut out a,m. dosing, because I suspected it may be causing daytime sleepiness. ( It is prescribed for every 6 hours, but except when hospitalized, I've never take the 4th one.) Four years of GREAT sleeping!

This medication has been the best for my restless legs. After three weeks noticed pain and tightness in legs and ankle swelling. Taking only .75 mg at night. Will try cutting back to lower dose.

To beginwith I had trouble with the falling asleep side affect. Then the timed release pill came along. we doubled the dosage and the side affects settled down quite nicely. the restless leg syndrome, and the parkenson's didn't bother as much. I am very happy with the results. My insurance will make me pa a high copayment. when one is on a fixed income it is hard to make the copayments. I have this drug and 7 others. Thank you.

I am taking Mirapex because my Doctor told me I have Parkinsons Desease. I am not sure I have Parkinsons but I will question him when I see him this month. I am wondering if when I take a nap I wake up finding things right in front of me when I am sleeping but they(the things) are gone.

Was given this medication for SEVERE fibromyalgia Syndrome. It had no effect what-so-ever. Just another of the myriad of "Guinea Pigged" drugs tried on me with no effect.

Comment from: JoeRLS, 55-64 Female on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: January 23

I tried this medication for RLS and started at .0625mg 1x at night, 1st nightno sleep, doubled dose to .125 2nd night, no sleep, incrased dose to .1875 the third nighht with the same results. Increased to .25 the foouurth night with no relief. Dr. did not authorize increasing the dosage any further. It may have eventually given me relief but I could not continue taking it and getting no sleep. I was originally instructed to take each doosage level for a week but due to the ineffectivness at relieving my symtoms, aI was unable to do that. It was a disappointing experience.
