Re: Mirapex--rage

In reply to Mirapex--RLS vs. Akathisia? (help!), posted by MB on April 23, 2003, at 23:52:02

I had used mirapex for limb movements. It actually initially took the pain out of my legs. I was so happy I increased the doseage to the full tablet like I was instructed. With the increase, I turned into a nut. I would be fine and then the slightest thing could set me off. I really stuggled with the choice of stopping the mirapex, which I finally did. No one could live with me. I tried it again, same problem. So now I take codeine at bedtime.

If the movements just started from taking a medication you may want to wait and see if they subside with time. Whenever my dosage of effexor is increased it becomes worse for awhile. Also letting myself become overtired can make it unbearable. Too much activity during the day can increase the symptoms. They say caffeine will worsen it, but I do use coffee and tea to help me stay awake.

So for myself, it all comes down to making choices.
