Thanks for replying to my request. Can you tell me what opiates do in regard to RLS? Are they for pain? I've never regarded RLS as a pain condition. Do you take them in conjunction with something else or by themselves. It's true: I haven't found myself obsessively gambling or partaking in any other ...

Mirapex

Hi. I'm not sure of the etiquette here. I haven't been here for a while and am not sure if I can just jump in, but I'm desperate for an answer to my dilemna. I've been taking Mirapex for about five years. It worked great; didn't augment. Now it's absolutely putting me to sleep during the day. Rather...

MIRAPEX MAKES ME HUNGRY

My doctor prescribed gabapentin last time I visited. He said he'd seen the best results in his RLS patients who used it. (Isn't it wonderful that doctors know what RLS is now? Up until recently, I had to tell the doctors what it was and what I needed.) Gabapentin made me too loopy. I took it at nigh...

Oh my gosh, it never occurred to me that the Mirapex was making me want to eat, but I've been going crazy. I find myself circling the kitchen looking for something to eat - and I know I'm not even hungry - I just want to eat! This is something to ponder: is the Mirapex craving stronger than any inne...

Thank you so much for your replies and suggestions. I apologize for not responding sooner - I'm just getting the hang of this discussion board and didn't find you right away. Terrytunes: I have tried splitting the dose and it is working much better for me. I worked my way up to one-half of a 1.5 mg....

Thanks, Zach. I'm aware this is not a good situation. Requip didn't do it for me. I'm a huge coffee drinker, so that's out! Guess i'm looking for a magic pill.

Mirapex is putting me to sleep. Help.

Hi. I'm new to your Discussion Board and not sure how it works. Hope I'm doing this right. I've had RLS all my life, but every day of my life since 1978. I'm confronted with a problem now that is causing me real concern and I'm asking for your input. I'm taking Mirapex. It works well - BUT it's putt...
