I have a gambling problem from Mirapex and had to switch off of it but the damage was done already. Has anyone had any success in sueing these manufactures of MIrapex, requip and nupro patch? These side affects really ruined my life more that Parkinson's has

DBS is an amazing miracle that changed my partner's life ( PD) and in that process mine too. It's been 5 years since both sides have been done and he recently just had his battery replaced. In the initial phase,, he was able to drop his dosage and many side effects from the other meds disappeared. Now however, his mood and judgment change frequently. Of course it is never HIS disease, it's my fault for always doing something to provoke his behavior. For that reason, we live apart now but see each other 4-5 times a week. I worry about him, but this gives him independence for as long as possible. PD is a cruel disease.

My neurologist is always asking about compulsive behaviours which are known to be caused by medications. Not sure of levo/carbo but Sifrol has a warning in th info pages.. Obsessive Shopping and gambling are supposedly danger signs. šŸ’

In my research The Canadian Movement Disorder Group warned that gambling was not uncommon with PD patients. I haven't had that problem myself but I do find I flares of anger.
