    Hello,

    I was just wondering if anyone would know the drug name Mirapex (pramipexole) and the antidepressant Milnacipran (Ixel) here in Melbourne, Australia.

    I have heard alot of good reports about these 2 drugs but we do not have them here. Perhaps there is an equivalent here? My doc is willing to prescribe them for me to try but we do not know their names for it here. Would anyone know
    how I can find out?

    Thanks in anticipation,

    Sue.

    milnapricin is not available in the US yet. might be the same situation in australia? it can be purchased online though. i ordered from the UK; it arrived, but i haven't tried it yet. not sure about the mirapex. in any case, you might look into ordering them internationally online and take them under your doctor's supervision.
