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. Additionally, the mirapex worked much slower and benefits took longer to arrive. For me, taking the Mirapex alone was not enough. I did not see better results until Azilect was added several months later.
