Question Mirapex For Depression?

Has anyone had Mirapex (Pramipexole) added to their anti-depressant regimen? I have been taking it for almost a week at 0.25 and now 0.50. What side effects has anyone experienced and did it help with the depression?

Re: Mirapex For Depression?

Mirapex has been used for depression, most recently within the last three years. Mirapex raises Dopamine levels, so it is no surprise that it would help with depression. I used it briefly for RLS. Be careful with Mirapex, as it has been linked with compulsive behaviors like compulsive gambling, sex and shopping. Google “Mirapex and compulsive behaviors” to get the full scoop.
