Restless Legs Syndrome

Wed, May 21... University of last hope

Anyone been on a high mg of Mirapex for years and made it off???

I'm sorry my comments were short a few days ago. No sleep for 4 or 5 days. I read and think about everybody's comments and I appreciate the time you took to write them to me. Things just got overwhelming.

The doctor herself called me from USF when I asked if they used opoids to quit Mirapex. She said they did on occasion but it depends on each situation individually. I agree. You have all said do it under a doctors care but I think when she finds out I am in PA for 21 days and FL 10 days each month, she isn't going to want to prescribe anything.The other alternative you have suggested is a rehab.

So what happens after I get off the Mirapex? What drug do I take to stop my legs and body. Not only that but was the Mirapex causing all my other problems? I have a lesion in my brain. Doctors said what that has damaged will never be able to be fixed.

Has anyone been on a high dose of Mirapex for years and have foggy memory, short term memory loss, anxiety, depression, uncontrolled eating, sex, talking, moving things... I just can't believe Mirapex would do all that to me.

I need to know if anyone has been on a high dose for several years and made it off of Mirapex.

I updated my profile. My symptoms and problems are pretty much the same so I only put them under symptoms I think.

I just need to hear a little encouragement...
