    NOTICE...HELP! I just found out today the manufacturer (Boehringer) has stopped making Mirapex, according to my Pharmacy! After suffering incredible pain and sleepless nights for years, I found a Dr. at a sleep clinic who prescribed Mirapex approx ten years ago. It is a miracle drug for my RLS.

My doctor then prescribed Mirapex to be taken about 2-3 hours before bed and I was finally able to sleep with no drowsiness in the morning.

    I have been taking Mirapex for several years now for RLS, works great for me. My question is: Has anyone taking this medication experienced hair loss?
