I have been taking Mirapex 0.325mg for about six weeks with great results. I am still very sleepy during the day and my sleep specialist thinks that I am narcoleptic too. I need further sleep test to diagnose this. My dose was doubled today at my appt. I think it is important to remember that drugs can have a very individual effect and patients need to be trusting of their doctor to make the adjustments in dosage and follow what is ordered. As a nurse who has suffered with rls from childhood , I am not quite sure why people are afraid of addiction to drugs that are non-narcotic.? I would encourage people to be open to treatment options.People who have high blood pressure will have to stay on meds for life and so will we victims of rls. I am currently on 0.25mg of Mirapex. I have no symptons of rls and no aparent side affects. Its been like a miracle drug for me.: Can any one who is taking mirapex to treat rls tell me how much they are taking and how are you getting along with it. Thanks
