Take it for RLS. Started at .25 for 4 days then .50 which worked for about two months. Dr. changed to 1.0 which worked for about one month. Now I'm at 1.5 and concerned about why it seems to only work temporarily. Dr. indicated he thinks I'll end up around 2.0. No side effects. Has anyone else had this experience?

I've had RLS for 40+ years. Have been taking Mirapex for 3+ years - started with 0.5mg and am now taking 1.5mg and occasionally 2mg if my whole body is tense. I sleep well most nights and have had no side effects. It has changed my life!

No side effects, other than I do get spacy during the day occasionally. Anyone experience any Park ... Show Full Comment

For the last 6 mos or so, I've been telling the Drs that I have periods of just spacing out, or "falling asleep". Could happen during a conversation, at a red light etc. They associated it with the apnea. I recen ... Show Full Comment
