    Anyone tried to wean off this drug Mirapex? What a nightmare for me! I started it from the FFC in Aug 2006 and it works great for fibro pain and restless leg however, if you decide to wean off of it due to side effects of compulsive behaviors like shopping, as I am, I have horrible sweats, and withdrawal-like symptoms, shaking, dry mouth, dizziness, fatigue and the pain is horrible!!!! I have consulted my rhuemy and no one seems to know a correct safe way to come off this drug without side effects. I am taking 2 0.125 mg tabs twice a day. Any feedback would be great!
    In pain and shopping too much in OHIO

    Wish I could help with this but all I can do is hope and pray the withdrawal symptoms stop. Thank you for posting about this. We really need to know how meds affect each other.

    Love, Mikie
