From this study (4 months ago):
rls became quite worse dr took off pramipexole and just 2 weeks on ropinirole working up to 3mg, not helping yet
From this study (4 years ago):
Hi I have been on 75 mg of Effexor Xr for over 10 years but due to a certain life crisis I went up to 150mg about a month before i started mirapex. I slowly went up on my dose of mirapex starting at .25 mg and increasing by a mg every 7 days. I am now on 1.5mg and still experiencing pmld/rls before if fall asleep but it is lessened in intensity. I am not able to see the specialist for another month and am concerned about the side effects...and wondering are they coming from the mirapex or the amount of effexor that I'm taking. In researching mirapex I have found that it increases sex drive...and mine is at zero, and it has always been very good. Any advise would be soooo appreciated. Should I go back to 75 mg of effexor and see if I am able to cope with little depression or should I cut down on the mirapex...is it the higher you go on mirapex, the more of the side effects??? Thank you for any information!!!
