    I've always had a pretty sensitive gag reflex, but for the past month or so it has been out of control. This is also how long I've been taking mirapex. I don't like to jump to conclusions about meds causing problems that might be from something else, so I thought I'd ask if anyone else has noticed an increased gag reflex after using mirapex. I have to brush my teeth before breakfast now, or I'll just throw up whatever I ate. It is very strange. But on the up side, I go hours without pain in my legs because of the mirapex, it is a miracle!

    and have taken it for 6 years. I haven't noticed a gag reflex from it, but I have gained weight. Some people have blamed that on Mirapex...but it's so great for my RLS. Guess I just need to cut down!

    You gained weight from it? All I've heard about is weight loss from it.

    It hasn't helped with my rls, in fact my leg is going crazy right now, I'm getting dirty looks from the cat on my lap. But it has helped my leg pain immensely.

    Have you tried Requip? I've heard a lot of praise for it here...restless leg is just the pits!

    I actually take mirapex for the pain in my legs. It helps so much. It has really changed my life. I feel almost normal now!
