... doctor to put me on mirapex,any comment?
27 Jul 2011
I am sorry about your condition. Mirapex is an older medication for RLS and has had mixed results, as have most rls medications. There are several new medications that your prescriber may not know about. I would google new RLS medications and look for information on two drugs: Rasagaline and Horizant. Both were accepted as first line treatments for rls within the last month or two. I myself am on requip and may have to switch as my dose increases, as it inevitably will. Good luck

mfn scott has given you a couple great suggestions of meds for your RLS. Mirapex is in the same group as Requip (as i am on requip also). Although i have researched mirapex extensively and find it to be a good option too. mirapex is stronger and it's first reason that a doctor would prescribe it is for parkinsons disease. another suggestion--you may need a muscle relaxer like 5-10mg of flexeril at night to relax your muscles. I know it has helped me, especially with muscle twitches and spasms.
