Advice & Tips: I had been on Neupro when I was placeld on Mirapex. The mirapex was not as effective as the Neupro patch had been.

I did not see better results until Azilect was added several months later.

Advice & Tips: Mirapex worked well for awhile by itself, then seemed to become less effective. Side effects were not a major problem. Tried combining it with Sinemet with no apparent benefit. Sinemet by itself seems to work best for me at this time.
