    Question Mirapex Causing Leg Pain

    I had a sleep study done this past week. I do have some apnea but was told not enough to warrant treatment. In other words my insurance company won't pay for it. The study did reveal Periodic Limb Movement Disorder, PLMD, and the doctor prescribed Mirapex.

    Last night I took my first dose of Mirapex 0.125. I had difficulty falling asleep but did manage some very unrestful sleep with frequent turnings.
    I woke with pain in my lower calves and ankles and could not get back to sleep because of it. I will call the doctor this morning. Has anyone else experience this?

    Re: Mirapex Causing Leg Pain

    I've been taking the mirapex a short time.

    I'm having alot of calf pain when i get up from sleeping feels like very strong charlie horse feeling, oh it hurts.
    i've noticed more so since taking the mirapex Have you been taking the Mirapex long or just recently started Mirapex ? My ankles are swelling more.

    Before you started Mirapex did you have pain in your legs, calf when you would lay down ?

    Since you have been diagnosed with PLMD, is their leg pain involved with the
    PLMD ?

    Mirapex makes me very sleepy shortly after i take it, does it you ?
    May i ask what your doctor had to say when you called ?

    Be Well
