Having been prescribed mirapexin for RLS was started on 0.088mg x 1 for a week then x 2 the week after. Did not sleep first week but after 2 nights of x 2 slept through. Mediction then upped to 0.25 SR. Sent me wappy - dyskinesia and dystonia off the scale. Spoke to doctor who agreed for me to go back to 0.088mg. It took me 8 days to get back to the point where I am sleeping again through the night.
On reflection I should have argued the case for me to remain on the 0.088mg x 2. It was working so if it ain't broke don't mess with it. Sometimes the medical fraternity can't help themselves in using you as a guinea pig. I intend to be more proactive in future when they want to mess with my meds. I know my body better than them.
