    Terrible drug. Worked well to relieve restless legs, but quickly induced deep drowsiness and confusion. Very scary. I stopped taking the drug and do not recommend it at all for anyone living alone.

    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.
