I have a similar situation. I did a sleep study and was diagnosed with sleep apnea and RLS. I am up to 50mg of mirapex because the twiching was getting worse. I do have the twitching/jerking happening in the wake/sleep transition. I wake up exhausted. I also take a couple other medicines that affect my sleep. Going to the Dr to see if I can get some relief.
Did they check you iron levels? I have RLS but my iron levels are good. My PCP recently upped my Mirapex to 50 mg and Ihave been extremely tired. I also take Buspirone and Androgel for Low Testosterone. They too can cause insomnia. I have sleep Apnea which doesn't help either! Hope everything gets better for you!!View Thread
I take Mirapex, Buspirone and use Adrogel plus several other medicines daily. I have high blood pressure, RLS, Sleep Apnea, depression, gout, arthritis. I use a CPAP machine but I have been very tired since my Doctor doubled my dose of Mirapex. I have been having terrible mood swings, which are very noticeable to my family. I have researched these medications and the Mirapex, Buspirone and androgel can cause trouble with sleep. Can this mix of medicines just making things worse for me? I have a terrible time getting out of bed in the morning and I feel exhausted most of the time. Does any one have any idea's about what I can try? Thanks for any input!View Thread
