  • Perceived effectiveness for Parkinson's Disease: Can’t tell
  • Perceived effectiveness for Tremor(s): Can’t tell
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 3 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I just started Mirapex ER April 9, 2010. I will keep a weekly update to let you know what happens. This is a switch from 24mg Requip XL to 3mg going up to 6mg Mirapex ER. I should not experience any of the sickness because my brain is already used to 24mg agonist. Dr Dewey says I still need to watch out for the compulsive side effects, "they can start at ay time".

  • Perceived effectiveness for Parkinson's Disease: Slight
  • Perceived effectiveness for Tremor(s): Slight
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Somewhat
Dosage: 2 mg Daily
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.
