    The Carb/Levo worked the reverse for me. It woke me up every 2 hours and I would be awake for 4-6 hour periods at a time during the night. I have never in my life had that problem. I always slept all night, just not restful sleep. On this drug, I got about 4 hrs a night, all broken up. So switched to Mirapex (mainly prescribed for Parkinson's disease). I've taken it 2 nights. It knocks me out. I don't think I can wake up in the morning, I feel like lead. Maybe I'll adjust to it and it won't be like that later. Time will tell. I wish I knew if I got to the stage 4 sleep with it. I will do another sleep test later with the med in system to find out.

    Has anyone else tried this medicine? MIRAPEX
