Pramipexole, help for Parkinson’s disease.

Taking Pramipexole (Mirapex) eases the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease–a progressive disorder marked by muscle rigidity, weakness, shaking, tremor, and eventually difficulty with walking and talking. Parkinson’s disease happens when there is a shortage of the chemical messenger dopamine in certain areas of the brain. Pramipexole is believed to work by increasing the action of whatever dopamine is available.

Something you should know about Pramipexole.

If you are using Sinemet or Larodopa, taking Pramipexole may allow a decrease in your dosage. Plus, if you suffer from the “on-off” effect that often develops during Parkinson’s therapy (symptom-free periods alternating with severe attacks), Mirapex may extend the good “on” times and shorten your “off” periods.

How is this medicine taken?

Always take Pramipexole (Mirapex) exactly as prescribed. If it you feel nauseous, try taking it with food.
If you are stopping your Pramipexole therapy, try to do it gradually. Your doctor will tell you how to taper your dose over a week’s time.
If you miss a dose take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to your regular schedule. Do not take 2 doses at the same time.
Store Pramipexole at room temperature; protect from light.

Are there any medications that may interact with Pramipexole?

If Pramipexole is taken with certain drugs, the effects of either could be increased, decreased, or altered. It is especially important to check with your doctor before combining Mirapex with the following:

  • Carbidopa/Levodopa (Sinemet)
  • Sedatives and tranquilizers such as chloral hydrate, codeine products, Dalmane,
  • Halcion, and phenobarbital
  • Cimetidine (Tagamet)
  • Diltiazem (Cardizem, Dilacor XR)
  • Major tranquilizers such as Compazine, Haldol, Mellaril, Navane, Prolixin,
  • Stelazine, and Thorazine
  • Metoclopramide (Reglan)
  • Quinidine (Quinidex, Quinaglute)
  • Quinine
  • Ranitidine (Zantac)
  • Triamterene (Dyrenium)
  • Verapamil (Calan, Isoptin)
