my mum was taking mirapexin which was giving her a good-enough quality of life.
Following the discovery of a very mild fibrosis in the lungs, the neurologist stopped gradually (over 4 weeks) the treatment with mirapexin, increasing Sinemet to 5 times a day.
Since stopping the Mirapexin, she has become severely depressed, she cannot move and has aches all over her body (which I found out is a withdrawal symptom from Mirapexin).
Can anybody tell me if such interruption of treatment was justified by a real association between Mirapexin and lung fibrosis (again very very mild).
Thank you for all your help.
