To clarify my theory about feeling the benefits of a drug after it is stopped: The theory being that the benefit is actually happening, but because of serious side effects (like severe sedation), I can’t “feel” the benefit. Then when the side effect lifts (yet the brain-level of the drug is still high), I feel the benefits for 5-7 days.

Can you tell me where I can read further about the “withdrawal rebound” effect? This is really important to me, because I plan on starting a painfully long trial on Mirapex, trying to overcome it’s sedation, thinking that I’ll get this wonderful response, if I ever am able to tolerate the sedation, over time. If your “unspringing” theory is true, then a long term trial isn’t necessarily going to get me the benefit I hope for, so I won’t bother with Mirapex.
