Thanks for the replies.
Madelyn, I have often wondered the same.
And, now am asking if this life-long problem has been intensified by Mirapex.
I hear you Paula!
My OCD problem is something that I have been plagued with since I was a child, but in such a minor way I could control it. It took me a while to think back to when it began to escalate and it was about the same time that Dr. Shulman asked me to return to taking Mirapex, which I stopped taking while I was working due to sleep attacks. She didn't want to increase my carbo/levo unless she had to, so adding Mirapex was one way to do this. My problem has escalated to a point that it is out of control, interferring to with life and causing me to seek professional help, in the event it is not Mirapex, then I have to ask myself what the emotional reason is.
Always that question...is it medical, meds, mental or PD?
I only take 1.5mg of Mirapex daily. I don't even want to imagine taking much more...
d...if, in fact, Mirapex is the problem.
