I was on Mirapex for about 9 months, and ran up about $30,000 due to shopping addiction. I've been off of it for about 6 months and just now getting to where it isn't a daily struggle. Does anyone know if there is legal recourse for this side effect? The doctor did warn me of possible OCB. But have to admit, wasn't expecting that! Going a little nuts with finance worries now, which in turn is affecting my parks symptoms... I think I am doing well keeping a well adjusted outlook, but have to admit the finances bring me down a lot more than the diagnosis of parks. Also, my husband hasn't been too understanding about this. I have gotten a full-time job and gone into credt counseling, but it's still quite a worry. Wow, that felt good to get that off my chest!
