I didn't mean to imply that the leg pain was not a result of the mirapex, just that it doesn't appear to be the case for me.

I was just reading through these last posts. Have you found out anything from your sleep center, Jitterlegs? Could your pain be from sleep deprivation? I think mine was, it is so much better since I have been sleeping! This is so complicated and I think we somehow think its just something we have to...

I was always under the impression that more mirapex would result in side effects & augmentation. What do you take? I have been B12 dificient in the past, took shots, for a short time (3 wks), I had no symptoms, but then rls started again. I also have a hard time taking iron but try. I slept agai...

Thanks

Thanks folks, so far, so good with the absence of the Prilosec, a little heart burn that I have been treating with tums instead. Will wait another week & maybe try the Prilosec again to see if there is a relationship. Thank you for writing!
