    Hi, I am new to this site, a friend told me about it and I love it. I have learned so much already about new ways to handle fibro and have discovered I am not crazy!
    My question is has anyone tried mirapex and if you did, did you think it helped and were there any side effects you didn't like. My Rheumotologist is asking me to consider it. Thanks

    Hi, and welcome!
    I have been taking Mirapex for about 3 months now (3 at 8 pm) with 1 Ambien and 1 Elavil. I have struggled with quality sleep for 10 years and finally found this combination that works for me. The way I understand it is the Ambien gets me to sleep, and the Mirapex keeps me asleep. I havent had any side effects at all, and I sometimes actually feel good since my sleep has improved!
