Mirapex ER Uses

How Does Mirapex ER Work?

Mirapex ER is classified as a dopamine agonist. This means that it works much like dopamine, a naturally occurring brain chemical. It binds to dopamine receptors and stimulates them, much like natural dopamine.
Dopamine deficiency (caused by a loss of dopamine-producing cells) in certain parts of the brain may be responsible for many of the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. By using a medication that acts like dopamine, such as Mirapex ER, some of the symptoms of this disease may be relieved.

Can Children Use It?

Mirapex ER is not approved for use in children (usually defined as individuals under the age of 18 years old).

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Mirapex ER for something other than Parkinson's disease (this would be known as an "off-label" use). Based on the uses of short-acting pramipexole (Mirapex), possible off-label uses of Mirapex ER might include the treatment of the following conditions:
