I was prescribed a low dose of Mirapex for restless leg syndrome. When I needed a refill after 300 days the dose was 2.5 mg. I didn't notice the change and continued to take the med every night. This past year I have been experiencing disturbing changes that my doctors could not diagnose. I had to be hospitalized and a friend noted that the Mirapex given was a different color than what I took at home. My symptoms have improved somewhat, but my confusion remains. Will this continue?

Mirapex maximum dose is still higher than the 2.5mg you were taking. Also, in dose studies they used Mirapex up to 6mg daily (which didnt offer any extra benefit over lower doses). In that fixed dose study the adverse reactions did not exceed placebo until the dose of mirapex was above3mg per day.
