I am on several other drugs and am worried about interactions. I'm also worried about it causing my bipolar to spiral out of control. I've just recently found the right mix of meds for my bipolar and am extremely concerned.
I personally have never been on mirapex but I have had my Bipolar spiral and that is definately not good. It landed me in the mental hospital for 33 days. Ask your pharmacist as he is the one who fills your other meds. If he's good he will look up any interactions your meds have with one other. Should an interaction be found it's time to talk to your doc about other possibilities.
mirapex is usually prescribed for 2 sleep disorders--restless legs syndrome or periodic limb movement--or for parkinsons disease. it should mainly relax your body and muscles and should not be of any concern for your bipolar disorder. I am on requip, which is in the exact same group, and i have a mood disorder too. i take it at night and it has not effected my stability on my other meds.
