Yes I have Some Mild RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome) And Doc , A Few Years Ago , around 1-2 Years Ago, Had Prescribed me Mirapex For it, I think Started me at 1mg , I think that's the Starting dose, i don't remember, it's been so long but I think it was that, i could be mistaken it could be a lower dose, But it was the "regular starting dose" whatever it is, i dont remember its been more than 2 years now, But anyways, you can check online for the starting dose for Mirapex for RLS And it'll tell you, what the starting dose is.
But, It caused Hypotension, Sweating, No energy, Dragged myself to Bed, to sleep around Few Hours, Then regain some energy and Ate Alot of Salt and Salty Foods, drank A Glass of Salt, Ate Salty foods like Chips but i really drank also a glass of salt just to be safe and stuff and I was fine. But Anyways, I then told the Doc, that The Med caused Hypotension and the side efffects weren't tolerable And I Quit that Med After 1 Week, and It simply wasn't worth the Side Effects, And My RLS is just Mild, Not Really Serious or anything. So I Don't Need Any Meds For It. But Anyways, Basically, BECAREFUL WITH THESE OFF LABEL MEDICATIONS, AND DO NOT , DO NOT, TAKE THEM WITHOUT ASKING YOUR DOCTOR, THEY CAN CAUSE SERIOUS DANGEROUS SIDE EFFECTS, AND THEY ARE NO JOKES,I think It's sister Med is Requip or something, But Anyways, those Parkinson Meds, Are NOT To be played around with.
Even L-Dopa the natural supplement, can cause hypotension, You Simply, Need to ask your Doctor regarding these things. Also, Dopamine Playing a Role in Social anxiety? Basically The primary Player in Anxiety is GABA, dopamine is just the motivation Part, and Any Med that boost Dopamine, Increase Anxiety as well as increase motivation, But those "ADHD" Meds, Can turn you into a complete Depressed Zombie, so Also becareful, they are NOT to be played around with. I don't think, they are suitable For Social Stress, Since they can Make you into a Zombie, Lots of ppl who take ADHD meds, are ANTI SOCIAL, And very depressed, because they cant talk, they cant move, they are robots, zombies, who talk and walk slow, or so I seen, and mos tof them end up on anti depressants. so i dont know who even came up with idea that ADHD meds are Pro Social When Lots of time, they end up turning you into a depressed Zombie who cant even open your mouth, lots of ADHD Kids,/Adults, hate Their ADHD Meds, cuz it makes them anti social, cant freely talk, they are tired, cant move alot, and completely zombified.
I think The Gold Standard For Social Anxiety is Clonazepam (Klonopin), It's the easiest Med With Low Side Effects, And Works or Most People but it Can Cause Depression at Any High Dose, And It Can Also, Cause Apathy and eventually Tolerance, and Stuff. And I Think, Maybe Nardil or Parnate Can be good Addition To It. But I Don't See how 'dopamine agonists' play roles in SAD, they may for some people so i may be mistaken. But It's ODD.
Also, Hormone plays a big role in social anxiety, testosterone plays a huge role in Social Anxiety and Confidence, testosterone in itself increases dopamine levels to very high levels, And It helps with Confidence, and social anxiety tremendously, so lots of People with low testosterone levels (males) tend to have Anxiety and social anxiety. Testosterone is PLAYS A MAJOR ROLE IN ANXIETY. Low testosterone levels can acuse Severe anxiety.
Constant Excess anxiety, cna lower teoststerone levels which then can cause Massive amounts of Anxiety due to low testosterone levels. But Anyways, There is Stigma Around Hormone Therapy, It seems that, Unless your 30+ or More, It's unlikely you'll get Hormone Therapy, To treat your Low Hormonal levels. Which Cure Both Depression and anxiety in alot of cases.
Though, there are many Alternative Clinics which do specialiaize in hormonal treatment, For man Males above 30+ and Stuff, and they don't mind prescribing, them unlike Regular doctors who think lwo testosterone levels, is okay, (low can cause severe anxiety/depression) but nways.
