What is this medicine used for?

Doctors prescribe Mirapexin in cases of restless legs syndrome, a condition that can cause tingling or pain in the legs, especially in the evenings and at night. The symptoms disappear when the legs are moved. This can be very annoying for sleep because you always have the tendency to move your legs (hence the name of the syndrome) which makes it difficult to fall asleep easily. Mirapexin reduces the symptoms so you can sleep better.

How to use Mirapexin?

For the treatment of restless legs syndrome, Mirapexin should be taken once daily. Take the tablet whole (without chewing it) with some water, about two to three hours before going to sleep to get the most benefit. It is customary to build up the use of this medicine, starting with a low dosage which is then increased every few days until the medication has enough effect. Never stop taking Mirapexin at once – decrease the intake slowly.

Dosage

Our partner pharmacies offer Mirapexin tablets online in various strengths. A doctor will determine the dosage. The usual starting dose for adults with restless legs syndrome is one tablet once daily at 0.088 mg every night for a week. Thereafter, follow the schedule as advised by a physician.
