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".

Nov 23, 2009 (Started Feb 15, 2002)

  • Effectiveness
    Can’t tell (for Parkinson's Disease)
  • side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 9 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: No real impact, because I have a medical background, I put my meds in a pill case and always have them with me, it became a ritual and did not interfere with any activity. At the beginning of the treatment, I saw a great increase in my ability to do "normal" daily activities. It was combined with stalevo, and amantadine, so it was not easy to determine which med or was it the combo, that gave me my life back.
Cost: $200+ monthly
