Mirapex (the brand name for the pharmaceutical product Pramipexole) is commonly prescribed for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease, as well as its many symptoms, such as muscle spasms, loss of muscle control, tremors and stiffness. It has also been recommended to individuals who experience “restless leg syndrome,” a condition where users experience discomfort in the legs during prolonged periods of inactivity.
The use of Mirapex has been tied to a vast number of side effects, such as:
- Severe headaches
- Insomnia or general fatigue
- Nausea and vomiting
- Muscle spasms, twitches or involuntary body movements
- Loss of appetite and subsequent weight loss
- Low blood pressure, and corresponding dizziness, fainting or lightheadedness
- Swelling or retention of bodily fluids
- Addictive or compulsive behaviors, such as gambling, overeating or sexual addictions
