I did not know what i had (RLS) until i mentioned my severe symptoms to my neurologist during my "migraine" appt., but it (RLS) was so bad I couldnt sleep without hot pads on both legs and ice packs on my back after intensive leg exercises, often several times a night. I was becoming desperate. He prescribed .25 mg Mirapex, which worked the first night. I felt my life had been saved. ... Show Full Comment

I've been taking this med for about a year now and at one point a few months ago I wasn't sure if it was actually working for me or not given that I take 3 other meds at bedtime. I decided a couple of months ago to stop taking it to see if it works for me. I didn't take mirapex for 2 days, yes it works for me for sure. I had so much pain. It works for me.

I used Mirapex for RLS at bedtime. Within 3 hours, I'm standing in the bathroom with water running out of every pore. Then I'm so dizzy and foggy headed I can hardly navigate back to the bedroom. Its makes me feel like I've got severe pneumonia with fever. This is NOT the drug for me. I'm going back to Requip. Never had these problems with that. Thanks, Mike
