Does anyone have PLMD and taking medication for it/ My sleep doctor prescribed Mirapex and I am not sure but I think it was .25 once a day. I did not have any side effects and then she doubled the dosage and I began to have almost every side effect listed. The worst one which caused me to be withdrawn from it was falling asleep while driving. I was traveling on a 4 lane divided highway and without any drowsiness or warning I woke up hitting the rumble strips on the side of the highway. This happened two more times before I made it somewhere I could stop. Last night my AHI was .89 but I had arousals that would total much more than my sleep. I am not sure what to do because the other medication do not look so good. Any advice would be appreciated.
