Timing of meds (Sinemet and Mirapex)
Posted 18 July 2013 - 07:29 AM
Thanks in advance.
Dx'd 3/12 @ 48. Symptoms 7 years prior.
carbidopa/l dopa 25/250 6x daily, CR 2 pills at bedtime
No DaT scan, normal MRI. Dx'd by observation of neurologist,
Symptoms: left side rigidity when "off", sleep disruption, no sense of smell, minor fatigue, back pain
Still an optimist - what is wrong with me?

My medication is exactly like that. My one medication (which is sinemet CR, where yours os Mirapex), was only lasting until 2pm instead of 3pm. So, instead of changing my whole sleep schedule, we just added sinemet 25/100 at 2pm, and that took care of the CR wearing off. So now I just take a 25/100 tab 1 hour before my CR (in your case, Mirapex), and it was all fixed.
Hope that helped, keep me posted.
