I was on mirapex for quite some time, but ended up with significant insomnia. But that was after several years. The requip and horizant were horrible for me. Lots of insomnia and augmentation.
Luck you! Opioids will be much likely your only long term option. When you experienced augmentation and insomnia from DAs it will just happen again. Probably it is just a matter of days or some weeks.
Also DAs wont work right as long as you take Benzodiazepines. You won't now what is really going on with your brain as long as you take these drugs. For me it is still shocking how many doctors do underestimate the negative effects Benzodiazepines have on sleep.
We do plan to get me off the klonopin. Luckily I'm only on .5mg at night, so it should be fairly easy to get off of them. I know it will be a long taper, but I can certainly do that.
I did start Neupro yesterday. So far I've only got a headache. I did actually dream last night, which I think is a good sign. Usually I don't, which I know can be a sign of poor sleep. Weird dream. I bought a BWM, went to pick it up and not only was most of the dash disassembled but it also had a 1960's era couch for seats. Strange. I'll report back as I progress.
