: When the neuralogist put me on Mirapex, it was like a miracle. No more RLS in the day or night. However, the past two weeks, I've noticed my legs getting jumpy early in the evening. I called the doctor and he increased the strength of the Mirapex. I'm fine again now, but my question is has this happened to anyone else. Also, what will we take when there is no stronger Mirapex. Exercise helps me but Mirapex has been a relief. Hope to hear from someone.

I'm experiencing the exact same thing as you! The Mirapex was a miracle for me, and an answer to prayer! I am now consistently sleeping each night for the first time in 20 years! However,
I recently went to a two week conference where I was doing alot of sitting--sometimes I would have a bad attack in the morning in the middle of a session. So I took one .125 tablet, which helped.
I also had to manage when I would take the dosages very carefully, so that I could sit through an evening concert. But I found with increasing dosages some days, if I don't take it "in time", symtoms
seem to be worse than they were before. Before my trip I was without mirapex for a couple days (insurance is a pain!) and got no sleep whatsoever--my legs seemed to be worse than the worst was
before. My legs are also getting jumpy earlier in the evening. I'm hoping to find out more about this on this forum and perhaps elsewhere--my doctor doesn't seem to know much about it. So this
doesn't help you much, but at least it's nice to know I'm not crazy! Let me know how you're doing!
