Mirapex worked for me, ;but after 4 months got side effects. Dr prescribed Requip.
6 Jul 2011
Requip has been a mixed bag for me. Initially it worked very well with litte side effects. After a couple of weeks I began to experience, as I went to sleep, a flood of images. My neurologist suggested that this may be because the medication was stimulating the part of my brain that stored memories. This has since gone away. Augmentation is an issue with this medication and I am up to 1.25 mg after starting .25 mg a day three years ago. I hope this helps and good luck .
