I had been on Sinemet,took it for almost 2 yrs suffered from extreme nausea that lead to wt lost and feeling ill 24/7. Now am on miraprex that causes my feet to swell, insomnia, urge to power eat causing excess wt gain. In the past I have had to take anti anxiety meds and had awful side effects so no longer take them. It appears anything that is going to 'mess' with head I am not going to get much benefit from. Anyone have problems with either of these meds?
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?

Every time my MDS tries to wean me off Mirepex, I get anxious. Anyone had success getting off this drug?
A 200 milligrams of carb levo Entacapone three times a day is causing dyskinesia where I can't stop moving and I feel like I'm on a boat. So my doctor is adding amantadine to control the dyskinesia. She did prescribe a lower dose of 150 milligrams of the carb levo Entacapone but no difference on the dyskinesia and actually lasted less then the 200 milligrams so I went back on the 200 milligrams. Guess I'm asking if anyone else has had this added to the medication and if they have problems with… read more
My neurologist prescribed mirapex er yesterday because my medication is not lasting. I'm scared to take the medicine is anyone else use this medication and did you do OK on it. Already get swelling in my legs this can cause that and it can cause compulsive Behavior but I'm wondering has anyone had sleep attacks on it. Your input would be greatly appreciated. He's also trying to get me on rytary to give me a smoother delivery of the dopamine without so much on and off.
I was diagnosed at 50, symptoms prob started at age 48. Has anyone tried mirapex or sinemet as needed (only taking prior to certain physical activity) with any success for stiffness and bradykinesia? In also on rasagline. Thx!
