I was prescribed Mirapex for my RLS which I've had for over 4 years. This is the first medication that I tried. I do experience nausea, vivid dreams and my whole body spasms when I first fall asleep. It's still too early to determine whether this is helping me, as I am having trouble staying asleep, and when I am awake, my legs need to move. I've been on it nearly 2 weeks.

Comment:
I have been on this medicene for about three years. I do belive that my body has run its course with this drug, and will most likely be changing prescription drugs in the near future. I however believe that the span of time in which this drug takes care of me without any side-effacts far outweighs the end of its span.
