Detailed Answer:
Thank you for posting your query.
There are some good medications for treating pramipexole. Using them would help you a lot. I use them regularly in my patients with good results.

Regarding sleep apnea, CPAP machine is the mest treatment. If you are not benefiting, then, the machine settings may have to be changed. If you still do not get better, there are certain surgeries like UPPP (uvulo-palato-pharyngo-plasty). Please discuss these with your doctor.

I hope it helps.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
