Mirapex Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Mirapex (Pramipexole), is medication used to treat Parkinson's disease and restless legs syndrome. In PD it may be used alone or together with levodopa. It is taken by mouth. Common side effects include nausea, headache, feeling tired, trouble sleeping, dry mouth, and hallucinations.
MIRAPEX tablets contain pramipexole, a nonergot dopamine agonist. The chemical name of pramipexole dihydrochloride is (S)-2-amino-4,5,6,7-tetrahydro-6-(propylamino)benzothiazole dihydrochloride monohydrate. Its empirical formula is C10H17N3S •2HCl•H2O, and its molecular weight is 302.26.
Patients treated with pramipexole a.k.a. Mirapex have reported falling asleep while engaged in activities of daily living, including the operation of motor vehicles which sometimes resulted in accidents. Although many of these patients reported somnolence while on pramipexole tablets, some perceived that they had no warning signs (sleep attack) such as excessive drowsiness, and believed that they were alert immediately prior to the event. Some of these events had been reported as late as one year after the initiation of treatment.
Some common side effects of Mirapex include: - dizziness when standing (postural hypotension) - nausea - dry mouth - stomach pain - vomiting - constipation - headache - dizziness - spinning sensation - drowsiness - swelling in your hands and feet - appetite or weight changes - blurred vision - sleep problems (insomnia or unusual dreams) - memory problems (amnesia) - forgetfulness - confusion or thinking problems - swelling in your hands or feet - impotence - loss of interest in sex, or - trouble having an orgasm (wow, Mirapex really sucks!)
