    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.

    I noticed your post from March 2006 regarding trying the milnacipran or Ixel. Please let me know if you have tried this and how it went or is going for you.

    Thanks much-
