Default Mirapex for Bipolar depression

I recently started mirapex for bipolar 1 depression. This is off label but many PDOCS are starting to use it.

Mirapex is for Parkinson's disease and restless legs syndrome. it affects the dopamine nuero transmitters.

Does any one have any experience with Mirapex ? Did it help ?
What side effects did you have ?

I read about a small study of Pramipexole, awhile back! I think the control group was only like 20 people...but it was highly effective! I recall the major complaint was somnolence. Best of luck and keep us posted!
