Is Pramipexole Out There?

Pramipexole has been a drug I've heard a lot about in certain circles (I was in a study at NIH), but not one I've heard much being prescribed "in the wild" so to speak. Is there anyone out there on it now?

Hi there,

I'm on Mirapex/pramipexole (0.5mg 3 times a day for a total of 1.5mg/d), but for a parkinsonian syndrome (due to infection) and not for psychiatric illness (I'm on Cymbalta and Lamictal for that issue). I didn't see a significant change in mood once starting Mirapex, but maybe since that was because my depression was in partial remission as it was.

I have heard of psychiatrists swearing by it for BP depression... maybe they read this research article...

(The article is a review of many studies using pramipexole for depression, and the authors even pooled together every statistic they could find in order to give us a conclusion.)

Anyways, talk to your doc and find his/her opinion about this. Best of luck in getting treated!
