I first took requip for primary RLS but that quickly became ineffective. I am taking .50 of mirapex nightly and found that it works most nights. Although if I have had any alcohol it becomes ineffective. I also have movement during the day so my doctor has started me at .25 in the mornings also. No side effects, other than I do get spacy during the day occasionally. Anyone experience any Park ... Show Full Comment

I have been on Mirapex for almost 2 years, for RLS. It seemed to be working, however I also suffer from sleep apnea and fibromyalgia. I have been taking 2mg before bed. 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

I use the drug for RSL. I find it effective on some nights, but on nights it is not effective..I may not get to sleep until 6AM, seems worse than if I had taken nothing at all. Yet except for those few days...its the best treatment I have found. Although it is not heavily stressed in the bulletins, I think more than one drink at 6PM, followed by the Mirapex at 10PM will likely nullify or make w ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I take .5mg about an hour or 2 before bedtime. Most nights it works. I've found if I perform leg exercises right after taking the drug, it starts to work faster & works longer. I usually do a minimum of 500 leg lifts 1 night & pedal or walk at least 2 miles the next night. On a bad night more exercise seems to help. If I don't exercise in the evening, the drug doesn't work ve ... Show Full Comment
