Mirapex for depression


  Anyone tried mirapex for depression? I intend to give it a try.
I've had trials on so many things. Parnate has helped in the past but it loses its effectiveness after 3 months. I suspect it is shifting my circadian rythym.

With regard to
the use of mirapex for depression, I have not heard of anyone using it. There
is certainly a rationale for using it, since it is a dopamine agonist and
other drugs with dopamine enhancing properties are used for depression, ie
Wellbutrin.  However, the use of mirapex in healthy, nonparkinsonian patients
has not been studied and using it in this fashion would certainly be outside
standard practices.
