Taking Mirapex and Neurontin for RLS

Has anyone taken Mirapex and Neurontin simultaneously for RLS? I have Parkinsons Disease also. I was taking Mirapex for 5 months, but began to experience unsettling side effects like compulsive sexual obsessions, very uncharacteristic of me. I went off the Mirapex, and started on Neurontin, but the RLS was worse than ever. Last night, I took three .24mg tabs of Mirapex after taking 300 mg. of Neurontin, and finally went to sleep after an hour of thrashing. Seems that the Neurontin is ineffective, but Mirapex is dangerous. Has anyone tried both as I did? I'm uncertain what is working and what is not.
