Mirapex (pramipexole dihydrochloride) is designed to ease the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, a degenerative disorder of the nervous system. While Mirapex is a popular drug for Parkinson’s patients, the medication has been linked to serious side effects, including a gambling addiction and compulsive behavior.

Mirapex works by having the same effect on a patient’s body as the naturally occurring chemical dopamine. Unfortunately, some patients using Mirapex who have no known history of obsessive-compulsive behavior have exhibited unusual compulsive behavior, including:

  • Gambling
  • Shopping
  • Addiction
  • Eating disorders

Mirapex lawsuits already have been filed claiming a link between the drug and dangerous compulsive behavior. One lawsuit resulted in an $8.2 million award.
