Mirapex is used to treat patients with Parkinson’s disease or restless leg syndrome. The generic ingredient, pramipexole, belongs to a class of drugs called dopamine agonists.
Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by resting tremor, unsteadiness and muscle stiffness. Doctors prescribe Mirapex to treat these symptoms. Mirapex is also used to treat undesired leg movements during the night that occur in patients with restless leg syndrome (RLS).
In patients with Parkinson’s disease, there is a progressive loss of brain cells which produce the chemical dopamine. As the dopamine levels drop, symptoms appear such as slowness of movement. Mirapex works by acting like dopamine, thereby helping treat the symptoms of unusual muscle movements.
Mirapex should be taken two to three hours before bedtime for patients with restless leg syndrome. In order to avoid side effects like dizziness, you may be prescribed a low initial starting dose. The initial dose is 0.125mg taken orally once daily and can be increased to 0.50mg per day. Sometimes RLS patients may not need continuous treatment so your doctor may guide you to decrease your dosage in four to seven day intervals.
These may not be all the side effects of Mirapex 0.5mg.
If you are younger than 18 years of age or allergic to any of the ingredients, you should not use Mirapex.
Talk to your doctor if you have kidney problems, low blood pressure, dizziness (or fainting when you sit or stand up) or daytime sleepiness.
Store at room temperature (15°C to 30°C), away from heat, moisture and light. Keep this drug out of the reach of children.
Movement is normally controlled by the neurotransmitter called dopamine. Parkinson’s disease causes dopamine-producing cells to die, thereby lowering the levels of this chemical in the brain. The most common symptoms of Parkinson's disease are tremor, slowness, stiffness and impaired balance. Parkinson’s disease is not life-threatening but as the disease progresses, there are increased risks such as falling down and breaking bones. Although there is no cure, medication can help balance the chemicals in the brain. Physical therapy helps mobility, flexibility and balance. Also, occupational therapy helps manage daily activities in your surroundings.
