Well, THAT was interesting!

So I've been getting off Mirapex because of augmentation after a very good run of 10 years. My doc recently switched me to oxycodone. (The full story is in Just Joined? under the header Another New One.) It hasn't been a great 2.5 weeks, although not a screaming nightmare either. One odd thing I not...

Thanks, ViewsAskew. I had an interesting night last night. I'm going to post in the Prescription Medications section rather than continuing in Just Joining.

Re: Another new one

A few more bits of information: As I've been reading the forum and seeing that 0.25 is the standard Mirapex dose, I'm remembering that even before the recent changes, my dosage had been creeping up over the past few years. A doc had told me the higher doses wouldn't be a problem, and really, they we...

Another new one

Hi, everybody, and thanks so much for being here in cyberspace with me. I'm 70 and have had RLS a long time. Started needing meds for it in something like the late '90s. Took sinemet, augmented horribly; added oxycodone, problem solved. Switched to Mirapex when it was new and getting good press. Wor...
