I did manage to come off Mirapexin but weakened my resolve and have been taking 2x0.25 Ropinipole. As soon as I increased the dose to 3 x0.25 I developed hives. I suffered this for an entire year when I was on Mirapexin. It began to stop being effective so my doctor doubled the dose to 4mg. This was in 2016 before I discovered this site. I am now down to 0.25 Ropinipole and 3x 100 mg of Gaberpentin. I am up most of the night grabbing sleep when I can. My legs around the ankles hurt so much. I have read here that some of you have found relief using magnesium & or Epsom salt. Where do you get this and what are the amounts. I am assuming that you mix it together to make some sort of rub that can be massaged into the legs. Thank you to all those who post on here. This site has been a life saver.
