Has anyone had to wean off Mirepex? If so, how slow was your schedule and what were your experiences doing it?

Does anyone have daily dizziness!

Does anyone have daily dizziness!

I am wondering if the daily dizziness is from the medications. I currently take Rytary, azilect, Mirapex and Amantadine. Almost continual dizziness can lead to falls and injury.
