It's been a while since I posted and much has happened over the past few months (new granddaughter, some finger surgeries, Christmas accompanied by numerous household disasters). After briefly going back to my old neurologist after the sleep researcher's Mirapex withdrawal program landed me in the hospital, I have now gone back to the researcher. The old neurologist had started me back down augmentation road again. This time the researcher decided I needed to wean off slower that the first time and bridge the withdrawal with the Neupro patch. I'm 11 days off Mirapex; sleep is intermittent if I get any at all. Not using a Neupro patch. Has anyone out there actually weaned off Mirapex and regained their life back? I'm starting to feel that is not even possible. Trying the Methadone right now - it sucks.
