What is this medicine used for?

Pramipexole alleviates the symptoms, so you can sleep better.

How to use Pramipexole?

If you are taking this medicine for restless legs syndrome, a tablet needs to be taken every night around two to three hours before going to sleep. Swallow the tablet whole (do not chew it) with some water. Usually the use of Pramipexole is slowly built up, and the starting dose will be increased by a doctor every few days until the appropriate maintenance dose is reached. If you stop using this medication, do not do so at once – decrease the dosage slowly. This will prevent the symptoms from worsening.
