I’ve been on mirapex ER 1.5mg for 6 months. It was controlling my symptoms well but the last few weeks I seem to have more stiffness , pain, muscle spasms and worsening of tremors. Mirapex has caused me to have weight gain and some feet swelling so I’m also nervous that will get worse with dose increase . What dose are everyone else on?
Welcome to the Team, you have found a very special group of people to share your life (PD) with who will support you and be there for you.
I was on 3, but the hallucinations started to kick in so then I went down to 1.5 as directed by my doctor and I have been managing alright
I originally started off at 3mg before be to keep leveled during the day. I started to realize it was making me sleep less and act out in my sleep. My Dr. cut back the dosage to 1.5 and I have been on Mirapex about a year, no signs of needing an increase and no distinguishable side effects at this dosage.
Recommend you go over any changes in dosage and frequency every month with your Neurologists if you are having any side effects.
i would be very scared if i felt like I was losing my mind.
