I am on 1.5 mg of Mirapex ER. I had to do the build up dosing so I have only been on the full dose for about a week. I have seen a lot of improvement in my walking and balance. I am also less tired and less stiff. However my tremor in my leg has not decreased at all and sometimes actually seems worse. Has anyone else experienced Mirapex not controlling tremors? Also does Mirapex ER get more effective over time?
I recently increased my dose of mirapex ER 1.5 mg to 2.25 mg to try to get better pd symptom relief. I’m on day 9 and my fatigue seems to be getting worse especially in the afternoon. Will this get better or maybe the dose is too high for me? Also so far I’ve only noticed a little bit of improvement in my pd symptoms. What was a good dose for those of you on mirapex er? Does it eventually get better?
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?
