Has anyone experienced the compulsive behaviour side effects of taking Mirapexin? My husband has been taking it together with co-beneldopa for over a year but has recently started to exhibit unusual sexual behaviour which he says he cannot help. This is causing problems with him removing his incontinence pads at night resulting in constant wet beds. The consultant has halved the dose but as I don't think the treatment is beneficial anyway, I am hoping he stops it completely, but apparently it shouldn't be stopped suddenly. His behaviour is out of character for him. I am sure this behaviour also had something to do with him pulling his catheter out.
