Anyone experiencing weight gain with Mirapex?

I'm on .25mg of Mirapex for RLS and am gaining weight. Has anyone else experienced this. Any idea as to why. Suggestions? Thanks!

Hi there!

Mirapex is less likely to be associated with weight gain. It is actually weight loss that is more common. Weight gain while on the medication, is likely to be due to other secondary causes.
Hope the information is helpful.

Take care!
