Re: Pramipexole

I started a response and lost it. Last night, I didn't go cold turkey -- took the same amt of Mirapex (1/2 of the 25 mg pill) and added a big Vicodin. Nothing touched it....I got no sleep. Tried to get some exercise, but mostly walk around in a funk. Doc hasn't called yet; I'll ask him about the pat...

Re: Pramipexole

I think what I'll do tonight is totally discontinue Mirapex and take Vicodin, see how that works. Yes, Ann, I agree about how different the opioids are on different people and at different times. I've had occasion in the last year or so to take just about everything. When I was withdrawing from Subo...

Re: Pramipexole

I wasn't clear. Last night I took the smaller amt of Mirapex and a Tylenol 3 (300/30mg). I didn't sleep at all. Not sure what to do tonight. If I'm going to be miserable I might as well stop the Mirapex totally. I hate what Methadone does to me; I've tried oxy before and it was awful too. I don't kn...

Re: Pramipexole

no sleep last night....I used Tylenol 3, didn't touch it. I'm so afraid of Methadone and it makes me groggy. I've never heard of rotigitine. Looked it up, see that it's a DA. Is it related to Neurontin?

Re: Pramipexole

I've just taken the Mirapex (1/2 a .25 tablet), but not sure what else to take tonight. I'm thinking not Methadone, need to stop that. What about Tramadol? These tablets are 50 mg. ????

Re: Pramipexole

Night three: took 1/2 of a .25 Mirapex and 2 of the Methadone (5 mg) tablets. Got really bad WED in the evening and didn't sleep 'til midnight, and got up at 7:30. But it's not horrible. I always have the memory of getting off Suboxone -- 9 days with no sleep. On my recent trip across the country, s...

Re: Pramipexole

I meant that I took 1/2 of the .25 Mirapex tablet. Whatever that is.

Re: Pramipexole

I'll try to post on here daily for a little while--in case someone else is interested in at least how one person makes the transition off a DA (to what??? hell, I don't know). First night, I took .25 of Mirapex and 15 mg. of Methadone. I didn't sleep. Taking any Methadone is a scary proposition beca...

Re: Pramipexole

I took 15 mg of Methadone last night. whew...barely slept at all. The upside is that I get so manic I become a cleaning machine and my house has started to recuperate from the 45 days I was away from home. I also took half of a .25 Mirapex tablet. Tonight, I'll try another opiate I have, in an effor...

Re: Pramipexole

I was going to take something, not sure what. I've got Tylenol 3...300/30mg. also Tramadol 50 mg Methadone 5 mg I remember doing this long ago, getting off Mirapex using Methadone, and it worked. I want to start tonight -- I just had a wonderful 5-week, 4000 mile trip around the South to see friends...

Re: Pramipexole

I'm augmenting on Mirapex and need to quit, at least for a while.
I take one .25 mg. pill and a half of one at night (I don't know what that adds up to).
After taking it, I immediately get WEDS.
Should I try to get off slowly, or is that a low enough amount to just go cold turkey?

Re: How much Vicodin?

Good for you for posting a clear statement about augmentation. Before I left on my trip, I sent my doc something from one of the websites and maybe even the Night Walker about it. I think every neurologist who treats us should belong to the foundation, receive the publication and maybe even be on th...

Re: How much Vicodin?

I finally got some sleep last night by taking Vicodin early, not waiting until nighttime. Unfortunately it made me run at the mouth. I'm in the deep South and started telling old classmates what I thought about various things and soon they were quoting Bible verses at me. Sigh. Didn't mean to cause ...

Re: How much Vicodin?

I take Vicodin every other night, along with Mirapex. Right now, nothing is going well. I'm on an "epic adventure" -- left Denver 2 1/2 weeks ago, heading south. I'm now at Orange Beach, AL....condo right on the beach...but the bed has peaks and valleys and sleep is miserable. I knew befor...

Re: Methadone, Mirapex tra la

Hey Beth: no and thanks for asking. I actually tried Methadone again for two nights and it all came rushing back -- falling asleep during the day, slurring, constipation!, etc. etc. Now I am rotating a variety of other stuff. I take Mirapex along with either: Vicodin, Oxycodone, Tylenol 3, Temazepam...
