mirapex

Posted By Sara on September 23, 1998 at 01:13:26:







Hi,
My Grandma was just put on Mirapex, but she does not have Parkinson's Disease.  The doctor told her it had something to do with her brain stem and something about receptors 3 and 4.  Now lord knows if she has any idea what she "heard" after he said "brainstem", because she freaked out and thought she was dying.  Now she has had a couple of episodes where she has become dizzy.  I was wondering if anybody might know why someone would be put on Mirapex if they didn't have Parkinson's, and what symptoms would they convey.  If anyone has any idea of any of this, could you please email me as soon as posible.  Thank you,
                                                                            Sara
