"I can partially answer to you. Pramipexole (Mirapex) is a D3 receptor agonist. It has been proven effective in treatment-resistant depression. However it has also some drawbacks. Anger, rage and hyperactivity have also been reported as side effects."

Mirapex also activates the D2 receptor a little less potently than the D3. This *may* be more responsible for those side effects than the d3 receptor activation.

Personally I think a golden antidepressant combo would be this. Buspar and mirapex. Buspar would be the serotonin agonist at the 5-ht1a receptor and provide antidepressant activity here, as well, mirapex would hit the d3 receptors. As a bonus, the buspars d2 antagonism would block some of the mirapex's d2 receptor agonism, and perhaps some of these side effects.
