    I have been taking Mirapex for about 5-6 yrs now and it works very well for my RLS. I have been having breakthrough issues lately but I take half a pill around lunchtime if that happens.

    BEWARE - If you have any impulsive urges, compulsive gambling, stop taking this immediately.

It works for RLS, but just be aware of this rare but devastating side effect.
