BEWARE - If you have any impulsive urges, compulsive gambling, stop taking this immediately. I took this medication for about 5-6 years and had never been a gambler, even lived in Vegas and hardly played. With this medication, I lost my marriage, my business and perhaps a million bucks. It works for RLS, but just be aware of this rare but devastating side effect.

I recently started taking this for my RLS. I had RLS symptoms every night. From the 1st night I took Mirapex, I have had no RLS symptoms. It has worked better than I expected. For the side efects, I am somewhat more tired, but take the pill at night to reduce the effect on my life. I have a lot of energy and find I am less hungry than usual. I am very happy with this drug and would recommend it f ... Show Full Comment
