MIRAPEX AUGMENTING?!?

I havent been here in a while, but the last report I had was that Mirapex was wonderful and working like a charm. Over the past week, I'm not so sure. I have been experiencing some muscle pain in my legs and arms that I have never had before. I wondered if this could be related to anything else, wor...

R...72, I had some very vivid, realistic, and distrubing dreams with Requip which led to some panic/anxiety issues for me. Dreams stopped shortly after discontinueing the Requip but it took a while for the anxiety to become manageable. Just my personal opinion based on my experience but if the drea...

Hey Bill. Headaches are a common thing for me, sometimes I do have a little weird feeling if I dont eat after taking my dose of .25mg per night around 6-7. The headaches were referred to by my neuro as a "common" side effect, but if it gets to where I cannot stand it, he will take me off and try som...

I started off on .125 and am now on .25mg like you, I have night sweats a few times a week, but as of yet I cant tell if it's directly related to Mirapex or that fact that it's so damn hot at night and the AC isnt really working that well. My partner has been complaining about being hot also so I"m ...

Hey liz,

Have you tried Mirapex, so far it's working like a charm for me. Takes about a week to get over the hangover and the dreams are something else, but no jumpy legs!

VIVID FREAKY DREAMS

I've posted in the past about the vivid dreams from Mirapex and I know some of you have the same. I've been having a recurring dream about a strange little creature, sort of fuzzy like a fat cat........but with huge razor teeth and he likes to hold onto my foot and chew on my leg. I'm no shrink, but...

YES....OR SO I THINK

Hey Bob. I have had RLS as well, all of my life. I"m 35 now, first memory of it was 5yrs old. Mine would switch from leg to leg, the hard hard kicking was something I just go used to. In 1999, I was working on a deck.....one simple movement and I tore cartilage and two ligaments in my knee. I never ...
