Mirapex and Migraines

Is there a theoretical or empirical reason that a dopaminergic drug like Mirapex could trigger migraines?

hi, well ,literature doesn't show migraine being precipitated by dopamine agonist mirapex.

Although studies with mirapex have shown headache as side effect but similar incidence was seen with placebo too!.Please visit website http://www.rxlist.com/cgi/generic/prampex.htm for more information.

hi,

Bhups is right.

Headache is one of the most common side effect of Mirapex .

Simple pain killers help in relief from migraine
But if severe please consult your doctor.
Why are you on Mirapex?

I came across an article suggesting that migraine can be one of the side effects of Mirapex
